Sexual predator was allowed to go free - then he brutally raped a Swedish girl

Police were aware that the man had history of sexually harassing young girls on buses in Gothenburg since 2021. But it was only when a girl was raped that he was arrested.
The 24-year-old #Eritrean is now charged with both rape and a series of sexual assaults.

The prosecutor has demanded that he be deported - but since Sweden does not carry out deportations to Eritrea, it seems he will remain in the country.
The Swedish Migration Agency considers it ‘inhumane’ to deport #Eritreans to Eritrea - because the African country is a ‘brutal dictatorship’.

The mendacious propaganda of #Somali troops being involved in the #Ethiopian civil war, particularly in the #Tigray region, is undoubtedly deceptive and I will dispel it once and for all. (🧵) 1/25
The @nytimes freelance reporter @MarksSimon deceitfully uses this screenshot in an attempt to give credence to the notion that #Somali troops were brought into #Tigray and were present around the city of #Aksum. 2/25
Marks uses the UN Report of the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in
Eritrea, written by Mohamed Abdelsalam Babiker, as his source. 3/25

In its May 17th edition, #Eritrea's newspaper, Haddas Eritrea, had an editorial titled, "The #TPLF's new war adventurism: Why & for what objectives".
The editorial asserts that the main target of this latest TPLF war preparations is Eritrea & its people.…
«Because they never learn from their previous disastrous experiences, are never bothered by massive deaths of the people of #Tigray about whom they pretend to care, & the only thing they care about is their hunger for power, #TPLF are now beating the war drums for the 3rd time.»
«In #Ethiopia, #TPLF's lust for power has as its aim to control again Welkait, Tegede & Humera, where they've committed genocide in their 27 years of misrule, & to open the corridor to the #Sudan, thereby plunging the country into chaos & disintegration.»

My uncle #Idris Ramadan Eilos.
He joined the struggle at the age of 19 in 1967.
He spent 3 years in the second province and was sent to #Iraq in 1970 for more military training. He came back in 1972 and continued his work as a fighter.
In 1975 he was elected as a member of the Revolutionary Council and was chosen to be the deputy of Hamid Temsah. In 1977 he was spearheading the liberation of cities in Gash, Setit and Barka, as the second man. He lead the liberation of #Geluj, #UmHajar, and #Tesennay.
In 1978 he was chosen to be amongst the leadership who will liberate #Barentu. Sadly on the 8th May he was martyred in the siege of Barentu. Today marks 44 years since his Martyrdom and every minuet that I think about Eritrea I look upto his legacy.

North Africa, Ethiopia and Middle East long range rainfall forecast bulletin:

The interaction between the two greatest Equatorial forests is having a massive impact on weather (see quoted thread for more).
This bulletin begins with a look at Ethiopia where rains over the #HornOfAfrica have been steadily building in April (img: today). A strong big rainy season is indicated by this, notwithstanding a strong La Nina which is typically associated with droughts (see quoted thread ^^).
We can see a glimpse of the GERD today - Easter Sunday in the Western Church - through the clouds (Rosieres Top Right - GERD Bottom Left). Satellite images of the dam - which this year will have its 2nd filling - may be increasingly hard to get with increasing cloud.

#BloodyWinter: winter is coming to Ethiopia and it is going to be bloody

1/ In 2-3 months the rainy season will be upon Ethiopia. I am hoping against hope that I am wrong, but I am afraid it is going to be the bloodiest winter in our history!
2/ It appears, both #TPLF & its backers have given up their hope of bringing #TPLF back to power & have settled for an independent #Tigray to serve as their #HOA proxy to disrupt the region. The catch: An independent #Tigray can not be realized without #Welkait.
3/ #TPLF is using this respite to appease the populace severely affected by food shortage and the terrible cost of the loss from the previous campaign in terms of human life and replenish its dwindling supply to feed its army.

L'Assemblea Generale #Onu ha approvato con 93 voti a favore la richiesta #Usa di sospendere la #Russia dal Consiglio dei diritti umani di Ginevra. Nella bozza di risoluzione - tra i co-sponsor c'è anche l'#Italia - si chiede di "sospendere il diritto della Russia di far parte👇 Image
del Consiglio" e si esprime "grave preoccupazione per la crisi umanitaria in Ucraina, in particolare per le notizie di violazioni e abusi del diritto internazionale umanitario da parte di Mosca".
Da notare i voti contrari: #Cina leva la maschera, non più astenuta, ma contraria.👇

1. Il parlamento istituisce la "Giornata degli #Alpini" per celebrare la data della sconfitta dell'esercito di invasione nazifascista (con generosa partecipazione italiana) in #Russia durante la #WW2 ad opera dell'Armata Rossa. A quale "eroismo" ci si riferisce? Image
2. Il revisionismo di un Paese incapace di fare i conti con le proprie responsabilità storiche: il tema emerge ogni anno in occasione del #10febbraio - rimozione delle politiche di italianizzazione forzata e di sterminio commesse dagli italiani fin al 1918 in #Friuli e #Istria.
3. Ma che emerge anche nelle distorsioni: perché la #GiornataDellaMemoria è il 27 gennaio - liberazione di #Auschwitz da parte dei sovietici nel '45 - e non il 16 ottobre - rastrellamento ghetto ebraico di #Roma nel '43? E ora in questa "giornata degli alpini".

Under poor leadership of Farmaajo, Somalia has experienced the worst spike in al-Shabaab attacks and growth. Farmaajo has made little to zero efforts to push back the heinous terror group.
Here is a thread of Farmaajo's efforts to embolden the terrorists:
Farmaajo's thirst for power made him forget war on terror and has been redeploying troops from the frontlines to territories of his political opponents. More to the threat of AS, #Gedo is also affected by drought but over 10M USD was used to deployed troops to rig elections
Last month, in efforts to rig in Fahad Yasin, Somali forces redeployed from Muqdisho killed #Beledweyne police commissioner, Mohamed Hussein Duurdage.
Farmaajo also refused to remove troops from Gedo to help Qoor qoor fight AS in Galmudug.

#HR6600: Promising Blood, Tears and More Blood for Ethiopia

1/ Engineered by #DrEvil, powered by @PowerUSAID, introduced by @RepMalinowski and financed by the pro_TPLF diaspora, #HR6600 promises to inaugurate a decade of bloodshed, starvation and instability in the HoA.
2/ @StateDept supported TPLF up until the last moment with the hope TPLF will come back to power. With their dreams dashed, it seems they came to the conclusion that their best bet is to work with the GOE. The ambassador was replaced & @PowerUSAID's seems to have been sidelined.
3/ Now, @DrTedros & @PowerUSAID are spearheading a change in strategy. The new strategy is all about twisting the arm of @StateDept through bills passed by the Senate or Congress.

Today in history: #Yekatit12. On Feb 19, 1937, two Eritreans, Abraha & Moges, attempted to assassinate Graziani, Governor of Italian East Africa, during his reception in Addis. Italians retaliated w open fire on civilians. 30,000 were killed in 3 days. #Ethiopia #Eritrea (1/5)
Making it one of the worst Massacres in #Africa history.
The Italian Federal-Secretary Cortese gave the order saying "For three days I give you carte blanche to destroy and kill and do what you want to the Ethiopians". Locals were indiscriminately beheaded, hanged, and shot (2/5)
Abraha, Moges & their driver Simeyon escaped the scene and hid at the Debre Libranos monastery. After that, the 2 Eritreans started their journey to #Sudan but were killed in Gojam by locals suspicious of outsiders. The driver was found by Italians and tortured to death. (3/5)

Communiqué to the Sanctions Panel of Experts on #Yemen:
The #UAE, which implements Resolution 2216 by proxy, which includes preventing the arrival of weapons in Yemen, is withdrawing Chinese guns from Yemen and smuggling them to the so-called “Believing Youth Organization
” banned in Somalia, and if the smuggling boats are arrested at sea, the coalition accuses Iran of smuggling these weapons to #Yemen.

The #UAE is a rogue state against international resolutions and threatens international peace and security. Its role was not limited to
fueling armed conflicts in #Yemen and #Somalia, but also established a military base in Eritrea, thus violating the arms embargo imposed on #Eritrea before the embargo was lifted in 2018.
How is it right for this state that supports #terrorism to rely on UN Resolution 2216

As Jan. 2022 draws to a close, we focus on the #Irob minority of #Tigray. Jan. 7 was the 1️⃣ year anniversary of the #IrobMassacre by 🇪🇷 forces in which at least 72 people were killed as they celebrated Christmas.

More on the massacre while under 🇪🇷 occupation since Nov. 2020👇🏾
Without electricity, telecommunication services, the internet & access to most of the district, Irob remains largely cut off from the rest of the world. But we know the #Irob continue to face an existential threat under #Eritrea|n occupation. 
#IrobMassacre #AllowAccessToTigray
We honor all the victims of the #IrobMassacre, known and yet to be accounted for. We also honor and remember those who were kidnapped during #Eritrea’s last occupation of #Irob (1998-2000) who are never forgotten.

"Noi però gli abbiamo fatto le strade". Forse, ma su quelle strade, oltre la violenza coloniale, portammo anche un'epidemia. Quando le truppe italiane arrivarono in #Eritrea, avevano bisogno di mangiare. L'esercito iniziò a comprare bovini, facendoli importare dall'India 1/n
Nel 1887, insieme agli animali arrivò anche il virus della peste bovina (#rinderpest), che piuttosto velocemente si diffuse in tutta l'Africa. Uccise il 90% dei bovini d'allevamento e moltissimi animali selvatici (bufali, giraffe...), generando una carestia che sterminò i 2/n

New revelations about atrocities by Somali soldiers in Ethiopia’s #Tigray war are casting a spotlight on an emerging military alliance that has reshaped the Horn of #Africa, weakening Western influence in a strategically important region.
The @globeandmail has obtained eyewitness accounts of massacres by Somali troops embedded with Eritrean forces in #Tigray in the early months of the war.
The new evidence raises disturbing questions about a covert military alliance between #Ethiopia, #Eritrea & #Somalia that has inflicted death and destruction on the rebellious #Tigray region in northern Ethiopia. Officially, the three governments have denied any alliance.

@SecBlinken Ciham Ali, a US citizen born in Los Angeles and raised in #Eritrea, has been missing since December 8, 2012. Ciham was arrested at the Sudan border as she tried to flee Eritrea. The teenager, who dreamed of becoming a fashion designer, was 15 at the time. Her arrest
appears to be in retaliation against her father’s suspected involvement in a coup attempt on the Eritrean government.

Nine years on, and no one knows where Ciham Ali is being held. #Eritrea is notorious for imprisoning people in underground containers where they where they
suffer extreme cold and heat. There are reports of many people dying from torture, starvation, infection and other appalling treatment in these jails. While other children her age might have headed to college, Ciham Ali has been suffering unknown horrors.
