Times – The Ethiopian embassy in Cairo is surrounded by heavily armed
personnel and armoured vehicles. Ethiopian citizens, both refugees and
Ethiopian-passport holders, are savagely harassed and beaten by ordinary
Egyptians and the police everywhere they move.
According to our sources, it is very difficult for Ethiopians to move
around and many people are starving as they fear for their life to go
out and buy foodstuff and drinking water. Egyptians are preparing a
massive demonstration against Ethiopia to be held next Friday.
On the other hand, Ethiopian Ambassador to Egypt Mohamed Dirrir met
with Egyptian opposition leader and former Secretary General of the Arab
League, Amr Moussa in Cairo today. Ambassador Mohamed Drirr has a two
hours meeting with Amr Moussa on the recent developments on the Nile and
has made clear that Ethiopia has no any intention of harming egypt or
affecting its access to the Nile waters.
