Ethiopian migrants illegally given visas to enter Sudan
Official sources confirmed to Radio Dabanga that an average of two hundred people are smuggled from Ethiopia to Sudan at El Galabat crossing every day. Half of them are women. The local authorities grant them visas when they cross the border at night.
Some 100 young people cross the border every day, claiming to work in agricultural projects in Sudan, sources told Radio Dabanga. They demand that the Security Committee of El Gedaref state and the Ministry of Interior stop the illegal border crossings and replace the local authorities responsible for the border crossing.
