ADDIS ABABA – At least 40 Ethiopian nationals have been repatriated from Sudan, Ethiopian embassy in Khartoum said on Thursday.
According to the embassy, the returnees were stranded in community shelter in Sudan after entering the neighboring nation for two reasons.
Some of them were planning to go to the Middle East via Sudan with the help of human traffickers, who left them behind in Khartoum and disappeared.
The others entered the neighboring nation to work without any travel document.
The embassy said the Ethiopians voluntarily returned to their homeland with the support of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Khartoum.
