Ethiopia: Horn of Africa: unlawful transfers in the ‘war on terror’

Index Number: AFR 25/006/2007

At least 85 men, women and children were unlawfully transferred from Kenya to Somalia and then onward to Ethiopia in January and February 2007. Arrested while trying to escape from war-torn Somalia, they became victims of rendition transferred in secret from one country to another outside any legal process. Amnesty International believes that most are still arbitrarily detained in Ethiopia.
