Ethiopians Shocked by Islamic State Killings ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia — Apr 20, 2015, 1:58 PM ET

Many in Ethiopia are reeling from the news that several Ethiopians were killed in Libya by the Islamic State group, which over the weekend released a video purporting to show the killings.

The victims were planning to go to Europe by boat from Libya but were captured and then killed by the Islamic extremists, said grieving family members and government officials. Ethiopia’s government on Monday declared three days of mourning.

The killings have shocked many in the predominantly Christian country, where some on Monday gathered in an Addis Ababa slum to mourn two former residents whose faces were recognized in the Islamic State video.

The 29-minute video, released on Sunday via social media accounts and websites used by the extremists, shows many Ethiopian Christians held captive in Libya being shot or beheaded by militants.

Eyasu Yikunoamlak and Balcha Belete left Ethiopia two months ago with the aim of reaching Europe. They are believed to have left Ethiopia through Sudan and later traveled to Libya where they planned to take a boat to Europe but they were seized by Islamic State militants, relatives told The Associated Press on Monday.

Relatives and friends of the two victims in Cherkos Village, a poor neighborhood of the Ethiopian capital, said Eyasu and Balcha grew up together and used to live in the same house.

Seyoum Yikunoamlak, the older brother of Eyasu, said he first learned about the death of his younger brother on Sunday evening while checking the news on Facebook.

“I was very worried how to tell our family but everyone is a Facebook user these days so people in our village told our family that Eyasu was among the group that are on the (Islamic State) video,” a tearful Seyoum said.

Family members stopped getting calls from Eyasu a month ago and grew worried, but news of a violent death was never expected, he said.

“His dream was to go to Italy and then reach the U.K. and help himself and his family members,” he said.

Redwan Hussein, an Ethiopian government spokesman, said on Sunday he believed the victims were Ethiopian migrants trying to reach Europe, an account bolstered by local residents who said impoverished young men are tempted to make the perilous journey to Europe.

“There is no job opportunity here. I will try my luck too, but not through Libya,” said Meshesa Mitiku, a longtime friend of the two victims. “I want to move out. There is no chance to improve yourself here. This is the whole community’s opinion.”

Ethiopia’s three days of mourning start Tuesday, when lawmakers will meet to discuss the killings and consider the country’s possible response, the governmment said in a statement.

Ethiopia has angered Islamic extremists over its military’s attacks on neighboring Somalia, whose population is almost entirely Muslim. A militant in the video said “Muslim blood that was shed under the hands of your religion is not cheap,” but the video did not specifically mention the Ethiopian government’s actions.

The Islamic State video showing the killing of the Ethiopians starts with what it called a history of Christian-Muslim relations, followed by scenes of militants destroying churches, graves and icons.

20 April 2015 – Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has condemned in the strongest terms the killing of a number of Ethiopian nationals in Libya by extremists affiliated with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), according to a United Nations spokesperson.

In a statement released earlier today, Mr. Ban said he “utterly deplores” the targeting of people on the basis of their religious affiliation and expressed his condolences to the families of those who lost their lives as a result of the attack.

The Secretary-General reaffirmed that the UN-backed political talks remained “the best chance” for Libyans to overcome their country’s crisis and encourage the parties to make all the necessary compromises to reach an agreement.

“Only by working together will Libyans be able to start building a state and institutions that can confront terrorism,” concluded the statement from Mr. Ban’s spokesperson.

ISIL, which is also known by its Arabic designation, Da’esh, has been operative in Libya over the past few months amid intensifying UN-backed efforts to facilitate a political resolution to the country’s ongoing crisis. In late February, for example, the militant group claimed responsibility for a series of attacks killed at least 45 people and injured scores of others in the city of al-Qubbah.

Migrant crisis: Who are Libya’s people smugglers 20 April 2015 From the sectionEurope

35,000 migrants have crossed the Mediterranean in 2015, many from Libya

Human traffickers are the key link that European officials wish to target. But they are taking on complex criminal networks that do not recognise borders and which experts liken to “multinational corporations”.

Libya’s coastguard officials believe that traffickers are increasingly working with Italian organised crime.

Giampaolo Muscemi spent two years travelling with traffickers across the world as he co-wrote the ebook Confessions of a People Smuggler.

He met one Egyptian smuggler who has developed a huge network in Libya over 15 years running boats to Italy. The smuggler insisted that was in his interest to provide safe passage.

His message, Mr Muscemi told the BBC, was: “I don’t want my clients to die, because my work is based upon my reputation. At the beginning of my career I was searching for clients, now that I am a big smuggler people come to me because of my reputation for safety.”

Business is clearly booming. A record 35,000 migrants have already travelled to Europe this year. Mr Muscemi estimates that Mediterranean trafficking is worth between 300-600m Euros a year, and this is encouraging amateurs to take over.

“In Libya, the clients are too many, they don’t have any choice but to put their lives in the hands of the smugglers,” he said. “So the smugglers can decrease the quality of the service. They don’t have to preserve their reputation. It’s just a matter of markets, if there is demand you can do whatever you want.”

‘If you don’t board they will shoot’

Since the 1980s Libya has attracted economic migrants from across Africa, but their role has now changed.

Europe’s border agency Frontex says that many of the original migrants have now become “recruiters, liaising between the Libyan-controlled criminal gangs and would-be migrants”.

Two migrants on a boat

Once in the country, migrants are often forced to hand over their money and passports, leaving them at the mercy of the traffickers. Ali from The Gambia was forced to board an unsafe boat.

“The Libyan man lied to us,” he told the BBC. “He said it was a big boat. We all paid 1,000 dinar (£488, $728). When we got to the boat, he forced us to enter with a gun, if you don’t enter he will shoot you, so you must enter.”

Libyan authorities rarely stop traffickers, with Tripoli’s coastguard admitting to the BBC they cannot handle the volume of boats and they will only interfere if a boat runs into trouble.

Much of Libya is beyond government control and it is believed that local militias are often active partners with the smugglers.

Media captionThe BBC’s Rana Jawad reports on the desperate plight of migrants from Libya

The Italian newspaper La Repubblica has published what it says is an Italian police recording of a Tripoli-based smuggler’s phone calls.

Eritrean Mered Medhanie claimed to have sent 8,000 migrants on Italy-bound vessels, in a conversation with another smuggler intercepted by police.

“I always let too many on board, but it is them [the migrants] who want to leave as soon as possible,” he reportedly said.

Getting richer

Mr Mescumi says one common misconception is to think of the smugglers as boat pilots or fishermen.

“They are businessmen,” he says. “They are clever. Think of a smuggler as someone who never sleeps and spends 24 hours a day thinking about how to break into Europe. They read newspapers, study European laws, study what Frontex are doing – they will probably even read this piece.”

He believes that the desperation of migrants allied with the profits that smugglers stand to make means it has become an intractable problem.

“One smuggler we met in an Italian prison told us: ‘You will never stop us. You can’t stop migrants.’

“When governments shut routes the business just becomes richer, because the journey is longer and more dangerous. You can’t stop it, you just have to manage it.”

Child among migrants drowned off Greece; Distress call made from boat in Mediterranean with 300 onboard Updated 20 Apr 2015, 9:48am

At least three people, including a child, have died after a wooden sail boat carrying more than 80 migrants sank off the Greek island of Rhodes, police say.

“We have recovered three bodies so far – that of a man, a woman and a child,” a Greek coast guard official said.

The sail boat ran aground on rocks off the Aegean island on a crossing from Turkey, a police spokesman said.

Most of the survivors were pulled from the sea and police fear the death toll could grow as they try to determine how many people were on board.

Of those rescued, “57 are safe and sound and 23 were taken to hospital in Rhodes”, the police spokesman said.

Greek TV footage showed parts of the boat in the disaster floating in the water off Rhodes and people holding on to it or swimming to shore.

Meanwhile, a distress call was received from a sinking boat carrying more than 300 people in the Mediterranean, the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) said.

The IOM said there were reports that at least 20 people were dead.

IOM’s Rome office said it received a call for help from one of three boats floating near each other in international waters.

“The caller said that there are over 300 people on his boat and it is already sinking [and] he has already reported fatalities, 20 at least,” IOM spokesman Federico Soda wrote in an email.

Flavio Di Giacomo, also from IOM, warned that so far they only had the word of the caller to go by.

“For now, this is simply a call for help … It’s too soon to talk about a shipwreck,” he told RaiNews24.

He said migrants often made distress calls even when they were not in a desperate situation to ensure they get picked up.

IOM said it had contacted the coast guard with the coordinates for the vessels.

But Mr Soda said “they do not have the assets to conduct these rescues right now”.

“The weekend incident has tied up a lot of resources,” he said, adding that the coast guard would “probably try to redirect commercial ships to the area”.

European Union interior and foreign ministers were due to meet on Monday to discuss the latest migrant tragedy when some 700 people were feared killed after a boat capsized off Libya on Sunday.

Surge in migrants fleeing poverty, violence

There has been a surge in migrants trying to reach Greece’s Aegean Islands from the Turkish coast in the last 10 days.

More than 700 migrants arrived on the island of Lesbos last week.

Greece’s radical left government, which took a less hardline attitude to migrants than its predecessors, appealed to local authorities last week to help accommodate the latest wave of refugees.

Greece lacks the means and the infrastructure to adequately cope with the growing number of migrants landing on its shores and crossing its borders, most of them en route to northern Europe.

Some 11,000 migrants have been rescued since the middle of last week alone and current trends suggest last year’s total of 170,000 landing in Italy is likely to be exceeded in 2015.

About 1,500 migrants have died this year trying to reach Europe.

ISIS claims slaughter of Christians in Libya again-BY CBS NEWS.

Displaced Sunni people, who fled the violence in the city of Ramadi, arrive at the outskirts of Baghdad, April 17, 2015.

CAIRO – A video released by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) on Sunday appears to show the killing of two different groups of captured Ethiopian Christians by the extremist group’s Libyan affiliates.

The 29-minute online video purports to show militants holding two groups of captives. It says one group is held by an ISIS affiliate in eastern Libya known as Barka Province and the other by an affiliate in the south calling itself the Fazzan Province.

A masked fighter brandishing a pistol delivers a long statement, saying Christians must convert to Islam or pay a special tax prescribed by the Quran.

It was not immediately clear who the captives were or when they were captured. It was also not clear how many captives were killed.

The Ethiopian government said they were looking into reports that it was their citizens in the video.

Also in the video,

The video bore the official logo of the ISIS media arm Al-Furqan and resembled previous videos released by the extremist group, including one in February in which ISIS militants in Libya beheaded 21 captured Egyptian Christians on a beach.

Since that video, tens of thousands of Christians have fled Libya, fearing for their safety. Egypt responded angrily to the atrocity, bombing several ISIS targets inside Libya in response.

ISIS has claimed that Christians who pay a tax to live in its territories are well-treated and has called on Christians who have left ISIS-controlled land to return.

In the recent video, a man identified as a Christian said he’s safe and happy living under ISIS.

ISIS has been able to gain a foothold amid the chaos in Libya as it has descended into chaos more than 3 years after a U.S.-backed uprising toppled the country’s longtime dictator Muammar Qaddafi, as various tribes, militias, political parties and religious groups battle for power.

The problem has been particularly acute in the country’s east, where several Islamist groups are reported to have been battling for control.

French forces largely expelled al Qaeda-linked insurgents from northern Mali in 2013 and some fled to Libya.

ISIS is also advancing in Iraq, where the extremists captured three villages near the city of Ramadi in the western Anbar province and were locked in heavy clashes with Iraqi troops.

More than 90,000 people have fled ISIS’ advance in Anbar, a United Nations humanitarian agency said Sunday.

The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said in a statement that civilians are fleeing Ramadi as well as the three nearby villages captured by ISIS a few days ago. It said humanitarian agencies have moved quickly to provide assistance, including food, water and shelter.

“Our top priority is delivering life-saving assistance to people who are fleeing — food, water and shelter are highest on the list of priorities,” said Lise Grande, the U.N. humanitarian coordinator for Iraq.

Grande expressed concern over the safety of the displaced people, who are mainly heading to Baghdad and the ISIS-held city of Fallujah.

“Seeing people carrying what little they can and rushing for safety is heart-breaking,” she added.

Iraqi officials in Anbar have described Ramadi as a ghost town, with empty streets and closed shops.

Iraqi troops backed by Shiite militias and U.S.-led airstrikes managed to dislodge ISIS from the northern city of Tikrit earlier this month.

But the troops have struggled against the militants in Anbar, which saw some of the heaviest fighting of the eight-year U.S. military intervention that ended in 2011.

Italian pm requests EU summit on migrant crisis 100115 Sunday 19 April 2015 23.28

Italy has called for an emergency summit of European Union leaders following the latest migrant boat tragedy in the Mediterranean.

Prime Minister Matteo Renzi said Rome would be seeking the extraordinary meeting after up to 700 people were feared to have drowned when a boat carrying them towards Italy capsized off Libya.

Mr Renzi said: “We are working to ensure this meeting can be held by the end of the week, it has to be a priority.”

The Italian initiative came as the EU came under fire over what NGOs termed a tragedy that may have been avoided if Italy had maintained its large-scale search-and-rescue operation off its southern shores.

The Mare Nostrum mission was suspended at the end of last year after Italy’s EU partners refused to help with the ongoing cost of running it.

There was a bitter row over whether the life-saving operation was unintentionally encouraging migrants and asylum-seekers to attempt the perilous crossing from north Africa to Europe.

In a statement, the European Commission said: “For as long as there is war and hardship in our neighbourhood near and far, people will continue to seek a safe haven on European shores.

The EU is considering sending warships to the Libyan coast to combat oil and arms smugglers.

But the EU fears that this move could encourage migrants to take to sea in the hope of being rescued.

These proposals were set out in a document seen by Reuters.

A naval mission is one of several options suggested by EU officials working for foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.

The paper assesses how a proposed national unity government if UN-brokered talks between Libya’s warring groups succeed.

Another option suggested in the paper is that EU soldiers could secure oil installations in Libya to let international oil firms resume operations.

That proposed move could prevent Libyan factions obtaining arms funded by oil shipments from installations under the control of militias.
