Ethiopia is the cause of our instability, Somalis say 10 years after invasion

Ten years after the invasion of their country, Somalis still remember the grisly atrocities and war crimes committed by Ethiopian troops including slitting people’s throats, gouging out eyes and gang-raping women.

Machar narrowly escaped assassination, fleeing to the deep bush as Kiir’s troops razed his home and killed his bodyguards.

And now the world’s newest sovereign nation is in imminent danger of becoming a failed state.  Continue reading Saving South Sudan (Documentary)
