Human rights abuses in Eritrea must receive greater attention after the boat tragedy off Italy that claimed the lives of over 300 people fleeing the Horn of Africa, an exiled campaigner said Wednesday.
"The abuse in Eritrea is high level. You can see how many refugees per day are fleeing the country. What happened in Italy, in Lampedusa, it's a result of the human rights abuses," human rights campaigner Tsedal Yohannes said from Geneva.
