Ethiopian immigrants abused by Saudi security forces
According to a cable released by Wikileaks, the TPLF minority regime in Ethiopia planted bombs in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa and killed innocent people in a bid to frame neighboring Eritrea for the terrorist crimes. Here are some photos of the crime scene in Addis Ababa captured by Reuter’s correspondent in Ethiopia, Andrew Heavens .

SUBJECT: ETHIOPIA: RECENT BOMBINGS BLAMED ON OROMOS
POSSIBLY THE WORK OF GOE
Classified By: CHARGE VICKI HUDDLESTON FOR REASONS 1.4(b)AND(d).
¶1. (S) SUMMARY A series of explosions were reported in Addis
Ababa on September 16, killing three individuals. The GoE
announced that the bombs went off while being assembled, and
that the three dead were terrorists from the outlawed Oromo
Liberation Front (OLF) with links to the Oromo National
Congress (ONC). An embassy source, as well as clandestine
reporting, suggests that the bombing may have in fact been
the work of GoE security forces. END SUMMARY
¶2. (U) On September 16, three bomb explosions were reported
in the Kara Kore area of Addis Ababa. The explosions were
heard at 4:45 a.m., 7:00 a.m., and 10:00 a.m. The National
Intelligence and Security Service (NISS), together with the
Federal Police Anti-terror Task Force later reported that the
bombs were “part of a coordinated terror attack by the OLF
and Sha’abiya (Eritrea) aimed at disrupting democratic
development.” The NISS said that the intended terror plot
had failed and the bombs had mistakenly gone off while the
suspects were preparing them while hiding out at an illegally
built house. Two of the suspects died immediately, while
another died on the way to the hospital. One other is in
critical condition. The police task force reported having
others in custody related to the plot and that evidence shows
the terrorists had ties to Oromo groups – the Mecha and
Tulema Association (MTA) and the ONC. They also said that
the bombs used contained parts sourced from Eritrea and were
consistent with bombs used in previous terrorist attacks.
¶3. (S) On September 20, Dr. Merera Gudina (strictly protect),
the former leader of the ONC (and a typically reliable
information source), contacted Post to report that the
deceased had not died not while constructing a bomb, but
rather at the hands of GoE cadres. Dr. Merera said that the
men had been picked up by police a week prior, kept in
detention and tortured. He said police then left the men in
a house and detonated explosives nearby, killing 3 of them.
He did not indicate whether the men were ONC or OLF
¶4. (S) Clandestine reporting indicates that the bombs did not
explode inside the structure, but rather appear to have been
placed outside and detonated.

Secret Wikileaks Cable Reveals Recent Bombings in Addis Ababa the Work of the Woyane minority regime in Ethiopia
The Two Wiki Files that Froze the Zenawi Regime’s Spine
Zenawi’s contempt for Ethiopian lives and his deceptive nature exposed in Wiki files
Here we go again, on another eye boggling denials by the shameless minority Ethiopian regime after embarrassed by a series of revelation from a secret US Embassy cables released by the whistle blower website Wikileaks.
Yesterday, they issued a frantic ‘press statement’ with the usual denials and full of armature diplomatic languages concerning ‘two issues‘ raised on the Ethiopia Wikileaks files.
The first issue that hits the nerve of the Addis Ababa junta was the release of the file that exposes the pattern and behavior of the Ethiopian security forces on how they plant bombs in the city then later blame on the opposition and neighboring Eritrea.
Because this latest revelation is to their complete disadvantage specially at a time when they were seeking, in a frenzied campaign together with Susan Rice, for more severe economic sanctions on Eritrea under the pretext that Eritrea planned a terror bomb attack during an African Union summit last January in Addis Ababa.
The report from a 2006 US Embassy cable reference id: #06ADDISABABA2708, said:
“An embassy source, as well as clandestine reporting, suggests that the bombing may have in fact been the work of the Government of Ethiopia (GOE) security forces.”
The Wikileaks report goes on,
“A typically reliable information source contacted Post to report that” the bodies of three men found at the bomb sites were “men [who] had been picked up by police a week prior, kept in detention and tortured. He said police then left the men in a house and detonated explosives nearby, killing 3 of them.”
This high profile US government report irrefutably witnessed the pattern and behavior of the minority regimes identical lies about a nearly identical “terrorist attacks” that are staged time and again in different parts of Ethiopia in the hope of getting some short-lived propaganda gains on its opponents by playing the blame game.
However, this also raises some serious questions about the credibility of the recently released report by the UN Monitoring Group for Eritrea and Somalia which blames Eritrean and the OLF for the January bombing attempt at the African Union summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
The second issue that makes the Addis Ababa junta a bit uncomfortable is the release of the file that exposes Zenawi’s ill advice to the Americans on the option of seeing an Al Bashir free Sudan.
The January 30, 2009 report released by Wikileaks shows discussions that took place between Zenawi and Acting Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Phil Carter and during the discussion, Zenawi told the officials that,
“Toppling the government led by Sudanese president Omer Hassan al-Bashir would be the ideal scenario for Washington.”
Zenawi then went on to wrap up his views by saying that,
“If he [Zenawi] were the United States’ he would look at two options and the first one, which he clearly conveyed as the preferred choice would be “removing the Bashir regime.”

International Commission of Jurists (ICJ): Ethiopian Leaders to Face a Trial for Genocide
By Betre Yacob
The International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) reported to have begun to work to bring Ethiopian authorities to justice for having committed a genocide in the Ogaden region. The International Commission of Jurists is a known international human rights organization composed of jurists (including senior judges, attorneys, and lawyers). The commission is known for its dedication to ensuring respect for international human rights standards through the law.
The report came right after different Swedish TV channels showed a movie smuggled out from Ogaden by an Ethiopian refugee, who had been a government official in the region. The 100 hours long movie is said to have many evidences of genocide committed by the Ethiopian government in the region.
Speaking to journalists, Stellan Diaphragm, the commissioner of the Commission, said that he would do everything necessary to bring the case to the International Criminal Court (ICC).
Reports indicate that although Ethiopia is not a member of the ICC, the country can possibly face trial for crimes under international law.
The Ogaden region is a territory in Eastern part of Ethiopia, and populated mainly by ethnic Somalis. Since 2007, the region has been a site of brutal struggle between the government troops and the Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF), a rebel group seeking for more autonomy for the region.
Different human right organizations accuse the Ethiopian government of committing grave human right violation (including genocide) against the civilians in attempt to control the ONLF’s public support.
According to the Genocide Wach, the crimes committed in the region include extrajudicial killings, arbitrary detention, rape, torture, disappearances, the destruction of livelihood, the burning of villages and the destroying of life stock.
Tensions mount in Eritrea: thousands of young people detained and air travel is curtailed.
The regime in Eritrea has been conducting mass raids and arrests (giffa) detaining thousands of people of
‘military age’ (18-50) and sending them to military training centres in Sawa, Wea and Barentu.
The raids that were carried out over three days starting Friday had the biggest impact in Asmara, Mendefera, Dekehare and Segeneyti as well as Keren Massawa and Gindae. It is estimated that up to 1,500 young people may have been detained in Asmara alone, and sent to Sawa and Wea. The soldiers who were carrying on these raids in Asmara were predominantly from the Tigray People’s Democratic Movement (TPDM), an Ethiopian opposition group based in Eritrea.
Meanwhile in Massawa, the raids were carried out by new Special Forces (division called 61) selected from the rank and file of the National Service Recruits.
Commentators estimate that there are between 9,000 to 10,000 fighters belonging to TPDM and other Ethiopian opposition groups being trained and supported by the regime in Eritrea, and this is not the first time that they have been deployed to duties inside Eritrea, in the wake of the January 2013 attempted coup, they were dispatched to the streets of the capital to quell spread of the uprising.
Over the months since then all key security tasks, including presidential guards, were transferred from the Eritrean in favour of TPDM soldiers.
In a separate news, air travel in and out of Asmara is suffering severe restrictions with Nas Air’s flights having stopped some three months back. Nas Air was privately owned by Mr Nesredin Ibrahim and used to fly to: Juba, Jeddah, Dubai and Nairobi.
This afternoon it was, also confirmed that Lufthansa seized operations and it is anticipated that the Eritrean Carrier leased from a Bulgarian company will stop operations on the 23rd of November 2013.
The troubled Eritrean Airline is infact a project blighted by incompetence and interference from the government as documented by its previous director, Mr Kiflom Dafla.
Currently the operation is managed by Mr Teclemariam Tedla previously resident in the US.

A Washington couple accused of starving, beating and forcing their adopted daughter outside as punishment were sentenced Tuesday to decades in prison for her death.
Larry and Carri Williams were convicted Sept. 9 of manslaughter in the death of a teenage girl they adopted from Ethiopia. Carri Williams was also found guilty of homicide by abuse.
Hana Williams was found dead May 12, 2011, in the backyard of the family home in Sedro-Woolley, about 60 miles north of Seattle. The autopsy said she died of hypothermia, with malnutrition and a stomach condition as contributing factors.
Carri Williams was sentenced Tuesday to just under 37 years, the top of the standard sentencing range, by a judge who said she probably deserved more time in prison, the Skagit Valley Herald reported. Her husband received a sentence of nearly 28 years.
Both also were found guilty of assault of a child for punishing a boy they adopted in 2008 from Ethiopia at the same time as Hana.
Larry and Carri Williams were convicted after a seven-week trial in Skagit County Superior Court. Defense lawyers told jurors that questionable parenting practices didn’t necessarily amount to a crime.
On the rainy night Hana died, Carri Williams called 911 and reported Hana was not breathing, saying the girl had refused to come into the house. Hana was found face-down in the backyard with mud in her mouth.
Hana is believed to have been 13, but no documentation of her birth in Ethiopia was available.
The trial was postponed several times, and her body was exhumed in January. Tests on her teeth and bones gave varying estimates, and experts were unable to agree on her age. Her age was significant because the homicide by abuse charge applies only if the victim was younger than 16.
The boy from Ethiopia testified that the parents used sticks or belts to beat him all over his body as punishment. He also described being sprayed with a water hose if he wet his pants.
After the arrests, the boy and six biological children were placed in foster care or with relatives.

Could an African ‘superfruit’ prove to be the latest weapon in the battle against Type two diabetes?
By: Laura MilnePublished: Mon, October 21, 2013
IT contains three times as much vitamin C as an orange, twice as much calcium as milk and tastes like a cross between a pineapple and melon. But the chances are most of us won’t have heard of the baobab fruit yet – let alone tuck into one for breakfast in the morning.
Prized in Africa for centuries for its health-boosting properties, the fruit from the ancient baobab tree is an extremely rich source of polyphenals, known to be beneficial in reducing the glycaemic response – the rate at which sugar is released into the bloodstream.
Now scientists from the Oxford Brookes University have established that this benefit can be transferred into foodstuffs, raising the possibility of creating a range of "functional foods" produced specifically to reduce the effects of Type two diabetes.
Researchers at the Functional Food Centre at the university, who have just published their findings in the scientific journal Nutrition, measured and extracted the polyphenal contents of the baobab fruit.
Using healthy human volunteers, the research team measured the rate of starch and sugar breakdown in their blood supply after they had eaten the baobab extract contained in either white bread or dissolved in water.

At its Ideas Summit in New York, Google revealed Uproxy: a service that aims to change the way people around the globe use the internet. A browser extension for Chrome and Firefox, uProxy can bypass restrictive firewalls that hinder users from accessing vital (and trivial) information online by creating peer-to-peer connections. If someone from a country with limited internet access installs uProxy, they can get a friend from the US to authorize them to surf the open web using their connection. The service has yet to launch, but its creators — the University of Washington and Brave New Software — have opened a restricted beta for select, technically adept users to make it as "secure, private, and robust" as possible.
