Eritrean refugees are dying on the road to freedom
Sister Aziza, an Eritrean nun living in Israel, mourns the tragic loss of life of Eritrean refugees in the recent Lampedusa shipwreck, and calls for international action against the torture camps in the Sinai.
The Eritrean community in Israel is in deep mourning, following the terrible news of the two ships that capsized on the way from Africa to Italy. More than 300 bodies have been recovered. Many of us here have relatives or friends who were on the boats and met their deaths by drowning.
