Somalis in U.K. protest at Ethiopian Embassy

ESAT News (September 13, 2017)

Somalis residing in U.K. held a protest rally at the Ethiopian Embassy in London to express their anger against the extradition of a leading member of the Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF).

Somalia last week handed over Abdikarin Sheikh Muse to Ethiopia.

The extradition of Sheik Muse sparked uproar among the Somali community at home and abroad. The ONLF has also decried the extradition calling it an illegal refoulement.

The Somali and Ethiopian governments say the Sheik is a terrorist.

The ONLF says it is fighting for the liberation of the Ogaden region and its people.
