  • Eritrea - Bombing attack

    T/I: 11:18:12 GS: 10:20:08 (12/06/98) Ethiopia and Eritrea bombed each other's territory Friday (5/6) in a sharp escalation of a border dispute being mediated by the United States and Rwanda. First came a report that Ethiopian jets hit the Asmara airport in two waves, the first of which involved four rockets. Hours later, the Ethiopian foreign ministry confirmed the attack, saying it was in reprisal for an Eritrean air attack on the airport at Mekele, capital of the Ethiopian state of Tigre which left five wounded. Eritrea asserts that frontiers drawn up during the Italian colonial period at the start of the century show the disputed zones are part of its territory but which Ethiopia incorporated into its Tigre state. The conflict has been escalating since mid-May, fuelling...

The attack came a day after Ethiopia's premier agreed to a peace proposal for their disputed border. No details were immediately available on casualties. Also on Friday, chartered aircraft were to evacuate hundreds of foreign nationals, including at least 200 Americans from the Eritrean capital, Asmara. Eritrean forces fire round after round of mortar attacks. These pictures -- from the 3 and 4 June -- were shot on the Eritrean side of the border near the town of Serha. The action has now reportedly moved to the border town of Zala Ambassa, a town inside Ethiopia which is currently held by Eritrean forces. On Friday, there were reports of fighting around Zala Ambassa for the third day running. There were also further tit-for-tat attacks. Eritrean anti-aircraft guns reportedly shot down two Ethiopian military aircraft after they had bombed an Eritrean air force base in Asmara. In response, the Ethiopian government said the airbase bombing was in retaliation for an Eritrean air attack on Mekele -- a town 200 kilometres (125 miles) north of Addis. At least five Ethiopians were wounded in that attack. The attacks came a day after Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi agreed, in principle, to a joint U-S Rwanda proposal to end the dispute. However, he also warned that his country's patience was wearing thin with Eritrea's refusal to withdraw from territory he claims it occupied a month ago. The disputed territory is some 100 miles (160 km) from the Eritrean capital, Asmara. Eritrea -- which gained its independence from Ethiopia in 1993 -- has insisted that it is not occupying any Ethiopian territory. It claims its troops are on Eritrean land as determined by colonial boundaries traced by Italy when it occupied Eritrea in 1885. The dispute has already claimed an unknown number of lives. These pictures from Zala Ambassa show Ethiopian soldiers lying where they fell. A-P-T-V also saw Eritrean forces arrest an Ethiopian soldier who had been hiding out in this bunker for 24 hours. There has also been intensive fighting in Serha -- bullet holes and shell holes riddle the houses. Many families have abandoned their shelled homes -- preferring to head away from the border. The wounded in another town under attack, Senase, which lies 10 kilometres inside Eritrea from the Ethiopian border, are being brought to this makeshift hospital. The facilities here are basic. Operations are done where patients lie. The Eritrean government has characterised the U-S-Rwanda proposal as "not controversial" but said there were still serious issues to be worked out. So, for now, the fighting looks set to continue.

English/Nat Ethiopian warplanes bombed a combined military-civilian airport as well as the outskirts of the Eritrean capital for a second day running on Saturday, escalating a border dispute between the two Horn of Africa nations. But there were scenes of joy and impromptu celebrations across the capital - Asmara - on Friday when the Eritrean government said it had shot down one Ethiopian MiG fighter-bomber. But for the foreigners trying to flee, it was a different story. Several of the Ethiopian bombs struck the civilian part of the airport on Saturday, igniting fires as people were trying to leave the country. Some of the those who did manage to fly to Frankfurt, in Germany, aboard a U-S chartered plane, spoke of the confusion in Asmara as violence escalates. A spontaneous outburst of national pride on the streets of the capital - Asmara. When the news filtered through on Friday that Eritrean government forces had shot down an Ethiopian plane, there were celebrations on almost every street corner. This was despite the fact that Ethiopian warplanes bombed a combined military-civilian airport as well as the outskirts of the Eritrean capital. The attacks continued on Saturday as well. Initial reports said two Ethiopian MiGs had been shot down Friday, but Eritrea later said only one had been hit and the pilot captured. Even young boys were proud of their country's achievement. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Ready, we are always ready." SUPER CAPTION: Celebrating youth Eritrea and Ethiopia, among the world's poorest nations, are at odds over at least six areas along their common border, which was traced by Italy after it conquered Eritrea in 1885. Eritrea gained its independence from Ethiopia in 1993, but the border disputes have lingered on. One volunteer worker boarding a U-S chartered plane at Asmara airport said it was very difficult getting information about what was happening. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The border keeps getting pushed up. War has been declared. I don't know.. a bunch of rumours. You hear bits and pieces." SUPER CAPTION: Aaron Greenberg, U-S Peace Corps Volunteer Although this charter flight got away safely on Friday, the following day, several bombs struck the civilian part of the complex, setting off fires as more foreigners were trying to leave the country. When the charter flight arrived in Germany, the evacuees said they had very little warning that they had to leave. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Some people have come with almost nothing and were evacuated at 10 minutes' notice. So people have, you know, left photographs and things that they valued very highly. But it wasn't - it was on the cards for two days." SUPER CAPTION: Edward Winter, teacher Others with young children were terrified as the bombing started. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We were scared. We lived very close to the airport and we hadn't expected anything like that. It was very surprising." SUPER CAPTION: Vox pop Many expressed regret that they were forced to leave their jobs and the Eritrean people with whom they lived and worked because of the violence. Because of the airport attacks, Britain and Germany were having difficulty trying to send aircraft to evacuate their citizens from Eritrea. But an Italian foreign ministry spokesman said on Saturday that Ethiopia has agreed to stop attacks on the airport for 13 hours so more foreigners can safely get out.

English/Nat Eritrean soldiers have shot down an Ethiopian helicopter after two days of intensive fighting along the border that divides the two countries. Both the helicopter's pilot and co-pilot were killed when the Soviet built M-24 crashed to the ground and burst into flames. Fighting continues despite both sides claiming military victory. Eritreans rushed to the crash site after news quickly spread that their soldiers had shot down an Ethiopian helicopter on Sunday. The soldiers danced around the wreckage celebrating a small, symbolic victory in the border war with Ethiopia. The helicopter was shot down near the Red Sea port town of Assab where the latest bout of fighting has broken out. The battle for disputed territory along the border that divides Eritrea and Ethiopia first broke out last May. More than one thousand people were killed before fighting waned in mid-June, following the implementation of a U.S brokered moratorium on air strikes. But fighting flared up again just over a week ago, with the Eritreans claiming Ethiopia is using aircraft in violation of the U.S deal. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We shot down an Ethiopian helicopter early in the morning." (NB - it may sound like the soldier is saying Egyptian helicopter but it is definitely Ethiopian) SUPER CAPTION: Ethiopian soldier On Monday, shelling just west of Assab went on for three hours and ended shortly after noon. The port of Assab is an important target for landlocked Ethiopia because it was once the country's main transit point for import and export cargo.

(16 May 2000) Natural Sound XFA The United States is pressing for a Security Council vote on an arms embargo against Ethiopia and Eritrea following the latest flare-up in their two-year war - but Russia strongly objects. Russia, which has been a major arms supplier to Ethiopia, called instead on both countries to cooperate with the Organisation of African Unity, which has been trying to broker a peace deal. Experts from the 15 nations on the Security Council were scheduled to meet on Tuesday to try to reach consensus on a resolution. Fighting between the Horn of Africa neighbours broke out on several fronts last Friday and Ethiopia is reported to have made a substantial push into territory previously held by Eritrea. These pictures show a military offensive on the Eritrean town of Shemboko, as well as wounded Eritrean prisoners of war. The conflict over the 620-mile (one-thousand-kilometre) border between Ethiopia and Eritrea - among the world's poorest countries - has cost the lives of thousands of soldiers and civilians on both sides. The war started with Eritrea's seizure of Badme, 400 miles north of Addis Ababa, in May 1998. Military analysts say Ethiopia now has the upper hand in the two-year war. It has broken through Eritrean defences in the northern Badme front along the border as well as at Zalambessa, 255 miles northwest of Addis Ababa. Ethiopian aircraft are supporting the infantry offensive, which is said to be much bigger than the one in February 1999 when Ethiopia retook Badme with thousands of casualties on both sides. Ostensibly, the war is about the two nations' poorly demarcated border - but observers say it is driven as much as anything by the rivalry between Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi and Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki. Eritrea, once a province of Ethiopia, gained its independence in 1993.

Of those injured in the attack 21 were still recovering in hospital on Thursday (11/06).

Natural Sound Eritrean anti-aircraft guns shot down two Ethiopian military aircraft that bombed an Eritrean air force base on Friday, a day after Ethiopia's premier agreed to a peace proposal for their disputed border. No details were immediately available on casualties. Also on Friday, chartered aircraft were to evacuate hundreds of foreign nationals, including at least 200 Americans. Elsewhere Friday, fighting continued for the third day around the border town of Zala Ambassa, about 100 kilometres (60 miles) north of Mekele, where both sides traded tank, artillery and mortar fire. The attacks came a day after Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi warned that his country's patience was wearing thin because of Asmara's refusal to withdraw from territory Ethiopia claims it occupied a month ago.

English/Nat After a week of clashes and cross border shelling, the East African country of Eritrea is preparing for full scale war with its Ethiopian neighbours. Disputed territory on the border of the two countries has sparked the latest round of fighting. The Ethiopian government has warned it will step up its military action if Eritrea does not pull out of Ethiopian territory, but the President of Eritrea has vowed it will fight on. Eritrea is now on red alert. While the country's government considers negotiating peace with its Ethiopian neighbours over a border dispute, the small East African country is also preparing for full scale war. On Monday, Eritrean soldiers distributed much needed food to people displaced by the recent fighting - among the crowds were many Ethiopians who have fled from their homes to avoid being caught in the crossfire. Over the past week recent fighting and shelling over disputed territory on the Ethiopian - Eritrean border has already killed more than 50 people, but an exact figure is unknown. The fighting is becoming more intense - this Ethiopian soldier had his head blown off by a shell - his body has been left to rot on an open road. More Eritrean tanks and other military vehicles crossed the border into Ethiopia on Monday. Eritrea, a forcer Italian colony, claims its forces are within internationally recognized borders drawn by Italy in the late 19th century. Eritrea helped rebel Ethiopians, known as Tigreans, to help topple the Ethiopian government in 1991 after a 30 year civil war. As a reward the new Tigrean led government, granted Eritrea its independence in 1993. And since then, an estimated 100-thousand Ethiopians live in Eritrea. Eritrea's President Isayas Afewerki said Ethiopia had effectively declared war on Eritrea and was using the threat of renewed air strikes to blockade air and seaports. SOUNDBITE: (English) "If we can find a lasting, sustainable solution, then we will have to think of reversing the process, building confidence again and trying to work together but it will take time and it will take a lot of effort, in my opinion." SUPER CAPTION: Isayas Afewerki, President of Eritrea While the disputed land is all but worthless, Eritrea still claims it as their own with pride. They are angry that new Ethiopian maps and coins include what they consider Eritrean territory. They say the fighting is about pride and respect. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We might be more concerned about pride, integrity, respect and all that kind of thing - trust, confidence. When you lose that it becomes a big problem for us in this region - it's not always money and resources." SUPER CAPTION: Isayas Afewerki, President of Eritrea The mood in this country is mixed. The people want peace but not if it means surrendering land they believe is theirs. Everyone here are conscripts. If war breaks out women will go to the front line to cook for the troops, the elderly will help with various repairs and maintainance and veterans are even prepared to fight again. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Everybody wants to defend this country. Since our country demands so many things, this is just one of the things we want - we want to fight and defend our country. It's our willingness." SUPER CAPTION: Negash Gerezghiher, Vox Pop The United States and Rwanda have put forward a four-point peace plan which includes a recommendation that Eritrea withdraw to positions it occupied prior to May 6, when border skirmishes first broke out. While Ethiopia has accepted the plan, Eritrea says it needs more work. Ethiopia has a population of about 57 (m) million people, while Eritrea's population totals about 3.5 (m) million people.

English/Nat An Ethiopian plane has bombed an Eritrean village full of homeless people, killing at least five civilians as it escalated the border dispute in northeast Africa. Two bombs landed three miles from Badme, where the latest round of fighting between Ethiopia and Eritrea began on Saturday. The two Horn of Africa nations are fighting over an unmarked portion of their 600-mile (965-kilometer) border. The fighting first flared in May, killing one-thousand people, before ending two weeks later in a tense standoff. The U-S had brokered a moratorium on airstrikes, but the deal now appears abandoned. War has returned to this arid stretch of borderland in the heart of the Horn of Africa. Weekend fighting ended an eight-month stalemate in the war between Ethiopia and Eritrea over their unmarked border, a conflict that has simmered since Eritrea gained independence from Ethiopia six years ago. Late on Monday, Eritrea claimed its troops in the contested Badme-Shiraro area had survived withering artillery barrages and helicopter attacks and had pushed back a three-day Ethiopian offensive. The Eritrean government said its forces had killed more than 15-hundred Ethiopian soldiers and wounded another three-thousand in fighting on Monday near the border at Tsorena, 100 kilometres (60 miles) south of Asmara. It also claimed to have disabled at least three Ethiopian brigades in fighting at the Badme-Shiraro front, 150 kilometres (95 miles) southwest of Asmara. Hand grenades and rifles littered the parched landscape after the battle and the air reeked of gunpowder and scorched metal. Amid the devastation and death, morale was high among Eritrean troops. They said they were determined to stop the Ethiopians from retaking the contested Yirga triangle, 95 miles (152 kilometres) southwest of the Eritrean capital, Asmara, and the largest of a half-dozen disputed areas. SOUNDBITE: (English) "They came to our trenches, this is our trenches, our defence area. So they entered, they came to out defence area. Our soldiers just fired and killed them" SUPERCAPTION: Eritrean soldier However, the Ethiopian government said on Monday that the Eritreans sustained heavy losses in Badme-Shiraro and further to the east. A government spokeswoman said Ethiopian troops captured major Eritrean strongholds at Konin and Konito, areas so remote they do not appear on most maps of Eritrea or Ethiopia. She added the Ethiopian air force had played "an instrumental role" in fighting off the Eritreans - a counter-offensive that would violate a moratorium on airstrikes brokered last June by President Bill Clinton. An APTN cameraman witnessed a high-flying Ethiopian Antonov aircraft drop two bombs just before dawn on Tuesday on Lailaideda, where Eritreans recently deported from Ethiopia had gathered. At least five people were killed and later buried in the hamlet, about five kilometres (three miles) from the border post of Badme where fighting first erupted last May. Survivors say they are too frightened to stay in the area. SOUNDBITE: (Tigre) "I saw the aeroplanes at 5am this morning. They were circulating in the sky and they dropped the bombs on us. Some of the villagers were killed and now we are forced to flee". SUPER CAPTION: Mekhrak Geralafie, civilian survivor of air attack For the relatives of the victims, the eight-month break in fighting between the two countries has ended in brutal tragedy.

T/I: 10:59:48 GS: 10:22:55 (12/06/98) Western governments scrambled to evacuate their nationals from Eritrea on Saturday (6/6) after Ethiopia sent airplanes to bomb Asmara airport in escalating hostilities between the two African countries.

T/I: 11:23:12 Ethiopia reiterated Monday (15/6) despite an agreed end to airstrikes - that it would not negotiate an end to its border war with Eritrea until Asmara withdrew its troops from disputed territory. Meanwhile, more Ethiopian troop reinforcements continued to arrive on the border with Eritrea on Monday, despite an "air ceasefire." The area, one of three main fronts along the 1,000-kilometre (600-mile) border scarred by heavy fighting last week, was quiet Monday, despite sporadic firing at a frontline village Sunday. Soldiers said that some of the several hundred volunteer militia called up to the front in recent days had simply been practising with their new weapons.
