"Cultural organization, only one in 6 countries is on track to meet crucial development goals that include decent education for all by 2030. New data from UNESCO also shows that although countries aim to increase proficiency in breeding and maths from 51% of primary school students in 2015 to 67% by 2030, 300 million youngsters will likely be left behind. On the pledge to provide secondary school made by all 193 UN member states, the UN agency said that only one in 6 countries was on course to achieve this by the end of the decade, the problem is worse in sub Saharan Africa, where only four in ten youngsters will complete their secondary education, said UNESCO insisting that COVID-19 had made the global education crisis worse by excluding so many children from class. To the Human Rights Council where countries have continued to keep worrying developments in Eritrea, Myanmar and violence against women and girls firmly in the international spotlight. Among the resolutions passed on Thursday, the council's 47 member states extended the mandate of the special rapporteur on Eritrea for another year. It comes amid numerous allegations of violations committed by Eritrean troops in Ethiopia's tigray conflict, including the rape and killing of civilians in northern and western tigray, the forced return of Eritrean refugees sheltering there and the obstruction and commandeering of humanitarian aid. On Myanmar the council passed a resolution renewing the call for an independent investigation into reports of ongoing serious human rights violations there a year and a half after the military coup at risk in particular in Myanmar are Rohingya Muslims and other minorities, hundreds of thousands of whom were forced to flee a military crackdown 5 years ago. Others significant resolutions passed by the council on Thursday included the Canada sponsored call to extend the mandate of the rights expert, tasked with encouraging countries to end all violence against women and girls after some discussion the council agreed to the explicit addition of girls to the resolution in recognition of the fact that as the Netherlands maintained, gender based violence is deeply entrenched in society and does not start only when a girl becomes a woman. The headlines there, and as we've been hearing the Human Rights Council has been in session for the last four weeks, that's one more week than usual and everyone's exhausted our bet. One of the country's situations that's attracted a lot of attention has been Libya. There have been protests across the divided country, too, in recent days, as you may have heard, people want change and a say in their future and even if agreement on elections still hasn't been quite reached, despite a massive push in recent weeks and months, another piece of the puzzle that's crucial to a peaceful future for all Libyans is accountability for past rights abuses, and that's where the fact finding mission on Libya comes in. It was appointed by the Human Rights Council to investigate violations and sadly it's found evidence of so many, including the discovery of more mass graves in tahuna, near the capital Tripoli, to find out more I've been speaking to one of the investigators, Tracy Robinson. The fact found in mission has discovered three sites in tahuna, where they've already discovered four sites of mass graves, and these three sites are sites, which FM believes are probable sites of mass graves.

There's over a 100,000 of those from sedans, Somalia, Eritrea, Ethiopia, who live here at Pennsylvania, highly concentrated between Harrisburg and Philadelphia.

And someone turned on their phone and showed me what Donald Trump had done, and of course my initial reaction was like, oh my goodness, definitely know he's not really a conservative. But very quickly thereafter, I saw when a lot of people are seeing and that is across social media, my name is on everyone's list. So like I said, I started off.

"Eritrea's armed forces. He's accused by the U. S of quote involvement in serious human rights abuses in northern Ethiopia. The U. S Treasury Department that does this, it says Troops under the command of General Phillipos Walter Johannes were responsible for massacres, looting and sexual assaults during the war. Integrate. Eritrea, of course, rejects the allegations as baseless. Let's speak now to Kettle Travel, who is professor of peace and conflict studies. Vietnam University College in Norway spent a great deal of time in the region, Professor welcome back to the program. Just tell us a little bit about the general and his position. His chief of staff, we understand is that right? Yes, He is the top guy in the military system in editorial, and basically then you can call him a deputy president editorial is, um and military regime, Although the president signs of working is a civilian as such He is a senior from the liberation struggle back in the seventies eighties as a tree are won their war of independence from Ethiopia in 1991. And since then, General Phillipos has been part of the military and rose to the rank as chief of staff some yes ago, Right? And how important are the sanctions that the U. S can bring to bear? Don't think they would have any substantial impact on the war itself and Eritrea's engagement integral as this is sanctions against one individual only an economic sanctions. But it has a symbolical value in a sense that U. S is now increasing the pressure on Eritrea to pull out their troops from the war theater integral And as well selling a very strong signal to Ethiopia that we will continue to pursue individuals responsible for the massive human rights atrocities taking place integral. Meaning that possibly as European officials might also be under investigation. Right? Interesting, So it's a bit of a warning for the future rather than something that hopes to have effect now on the ground. There are reports aren't there. I don't know what you're hearing that Eritrean forces are actually entrenching or moving in, far from doing what the U. S and others have asked them to do and withdraw. Yes, that's correct. Over the last couple of weeks, we have seen Editori in forces again coming into decry the western part of the Garonne, which closes off so to say the liberated areas from the Sudan border. They are entrenching themselves there, possibly because that Ethiopian and I'm harder forces have been pulled out of the region in order to fight the two great enforces. In Amhara and and social to dry. But that train forces are also as we hear, deploying, um new people along the northern border between Eritrea and Tigre, possibly Preparing some kind of new offensive into to dry proper and in terms of the effectiveness of the sanctions. I mean, you said that in in effect, practically they don't mean that much. Is there not Is there, not a case. I mean, the Treasury Department is why the Treasury Department of doing it. The idea is that you chase money that very often, These people who are being sanctioned have made enormous amounts of money through their military influence and military power. Would that be the case with the general as well? Yes, that's true. The Eritrean military system or the general level, Uh, leadership of the system are highly corrupted for decades they have been. They have been accused of being behind some of the trafficking of edit trained refugees and how cashed in a lot on that They are also trading in exit visas and protections. And of course they on huge properties in that area where they use at a train conscripts as slave labor according to you, then And these things are target herbal. I mean for for the Treasury to be able to sort of pull a lever and for anything to happen. It has to be done in dollars. It has to use the American bank. I mean, that's what I understand the banking system and so on. You just described a kind of like a stranglehold within Eritrea. Do they have wealth outside Eritrea? These figures Yes. Well, according to information we do have at a tree and the tiny population is one of them Countries with most, Um uh, the highest level of them. Or Ben, uh, flows of money, illicit flows of money. And we assume, however, that most of that money belonging to the trend leadership is not placed in US banks but probably Middle Eastern bags. But we also know that the U. S. Treasury have the potential to block transfer of funds. Also outside their own borders, so that might have an impact right once again, many thanks indeed, very informative background on General Phillipos Wilder Johannes, the chief of staff.

So what will his inauguration look like? I spoke to Zambian journalist between agenda in Lusaka a short while ago the opposition either I think from from Botswana, um his is in the country arrived yesterday. Also, former Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga is in, um yes, and there have been quite a number of foreign presidents who have come in. But speaking of the mood in the saga, um, the two hours away from when the ceremony is officially supposed to start base. Similarly, with dignitaries arriving there so many people that are trekking towards the stadium, the National Hero Stadium where the inauguration is is going to be at some point, the the security officers had to block off the road to sort of just allow official vehicles to be passing. But I could see a stretch of people in red T shirts. Red is the color of the party that talking that he should have president aka in the region. Beads, and there was a sea of red T shirt stretching for about maybe over a kilometer also, wow. So lots of popular enthusiasm. How big? Are they going to go on the actual ceremony?

A dark picture emerges: atrocities in Ethiopia
"Rumors and scattered reports of atrocities in ethiopia's northern region of tigray have been swirling for months amid a media blackout. But the picture is now starting to become clearer and evidence for war. Crimes and crimes against humanity are stacking up on sunday. America's secretary of state anthony blinken condemned the killings sexual assaults and forced removals said to have taken place in tigray and called for troops to be withdrawn. The conflict began late last year. When the region's ruling party the tigray people's liberation front or tps aleph was booted out of the federal government where it had dominated for decades has to be off. Matt has announced quote final military operation against the defiant gripe province in coming days and a statement.

Over the tb l. f. An armed resistance has continued yesterday. If government rejected america's demands describing. Mr lincoln's comments as regrettable. Thousands are known to have died in the conflict and more than two million people have been displaced. The growing civil war has drawn in fighters from neighboring regions and troops from eritrea which borders tigray to the north. I'm gonna stay. International has just released a report detailing its investigation into this incident that took place in late november an accident which is one of the oldest and most famous holy cities. Tom gardner addis. ababa correspondent. Ever soldiers killed hundreds of civilians over two days. And what i'm going to stay says was retaliation for an attack by local youth on their military camp now. Amnesty says the soldiers roams around the streets of the city picking out on young men and killing them on the spot then proceeded to plunder the city essentially of everything of value survivors said that all they could see on the streets with bodies and people crying this systematic slaughter civilians and axiom may amount to crimes against humanity according to amnesty. And you say the main players in this incident or allegedly airtran soldiers right just to remind people. This conflict has drawn in a few other parties. In addition to the ethiopian federal army and two grand forces loyal to the tps laugh you also have militia security forces from may bring regional state of. Im hara which has a rivalry with the laugh and disputed territories along their border and then and this is really controversial element. You have troops from eritrea. Which since the beginning of the conflict has been fighting alongside the ethiopian army against the which has a long rivalry with as well as to whether all these parties are committing atrocities. I think based on everything we know so far. Yes but i think. Eritrean soldiers are the most widely and extensively implicated and there are allegations of other atrocities beyond. What's happened in axiom. Ever since the war began in late november we've been hearing accounts trickling out which beginners rumor clearer. Picture is slowly started to emerge. We've seen several videos that appear to show ethiopian soldiers. Standing among the bodies of civilians. They've murdered there was an investigation by human rights. Watch found. European army had shelled towns including the capital of tigray mckelway killing at least eight hundred civilians including women and children and winding back to the beginning of the war the very first atrocity we heard about was this massacre in the town of my tatra which is in western tigray near the border with the neighboring regional state. I'm harlem according to a report that amnesty published at the time most of the victims were. I'm horrors murdered by militia. Sure the ousted rulers of tigray the epl f. That was then confirmed by day. State appointed human rights commission. Here however take ryan's reflect across the border to saddam tell of attacks on civilians by them militiamen an by government soldiers in the same area for its part. What is the european government saying about all these reports so that is an important question on february. The twenty six th the ethiopian rights commission which is a state appointed or body released a statement saying that it had also conduct an investigation. And that it's key. Findings brutally corroborated those of amnesty. That's quite a significant step forward by the commission which tried two to three years ago would never have come out with a statement like that. The question though moving forward is whether the government decides to accept its findings and act on them. We have heard a lot from the prime minister's office the attorney general's office and other government agencies about accountability but so far very little indication that the government is willing to hold anyone but members of the tepe accountable for crimes committed during this conflict. More makes it even more. Complicated of course is the fact that the prime culprits in this case were eritrean. Troops can be very politically difficult for the government.

Ethiopian military says it killed 15 Tigray rebels
"Now, and the tension between the government in Addis Ababa and the northern province of Tigre is continuing. You'll recall that armed conflict in early November broke out between the Ethiopian army. And the T p L F T T Dry People's Liberation Front government declared victory within a month. Now, the army has announced the killing and arrest of more civilian and military leaders off the TPLF. That speak to Martin clout. Now who formerly off this parish and is an expert on the Horn of Africa. Martin, What can you tell us about this announcement late last night by the Ethiopian government? Does it sound plausible? In terms of what they're saying? What are they? What are they telling us? They've done Well, yes, it does. I mean, it's it's clear that they have made a number of arrests and people are being killed. I mean, including some really quite significant figures like a very well do who was a former president of Tigre and the chairman of the Tigre People's Liberation Front. One thing one has to remember is that this is now a guerilla war Thebes. Gran's withdrew when McCallie fell. That's the capital of the region of Tigre. They withdrew to the mountains. There's now heavy fighting going on across the region with Eritrean forces from the north on damn horror militia. Backing the Ethiopian forces from the south and from the east on this is now a full scale war that is going on, which is frankly bogging down. Everybody involved. So when you when you talk about the war continuing, of course, the rhetoric coming out of Addis is that they have resolved this. Well, I don't think we have to take that terribly seriously. I mean, to be honest with you that the thing you need to ask yourself is why is it that all independent journalists apart from one Belgian, who managed to get in have been banned from the area. There aren't even embedded Ethiopian journalists up on the front. Onboard. The situation sounds frankly, pretty dreadful. What is what more given that the beginning of the conflict? We We weren't really able to get through too many people into dry where there there have been all sorts of reports of destruction of cultural artifacts. And so on. What? What more do we know about that? Well, I've just been able to stand up for what happened at the church off Mariam in in Axle, which is one of the holy sites off. Ethiopia. It's the site at which the Ark of the Covenant is believed to be kept, which could may only be seen by a monk. A guardian monk on dawn, the 15th of December What happened was there was a confrontation. Troops entered the compound, which they're not meant to do. There was a confrontation with the people inside. They were forced outside into the square and up to 750. People were shot by the horror and the Ethiopian troops outside on. That is not the only one. There's also now There's a report, which has been actually confirmed by the Ethiopians themselves that the oldest mosque in Africa, then Ajusshi mosque, which was built by the companions off the Prophet Mohammed in the fourth century, was also shelled. Theise. You can say this was done because the two grands built trenches in the area. But these these are really serious damage to the cultural artifact. And on top of that you have a number off factories, which were built in in a number of towns, which have been either trashed or demolished. And many of them are not being looted and that their contents taken to Eritrea.

Yeah, but that's a beginning of an answer to my next question. But I mean, why would Eric trains be getting involved in a conflict across their borders? It's a pretty big step to take. Well, yes, definitely. And for many regional players, they're seeing this as a way in which every track could punish the TPLF for that border war. But that's neither here nor there.

Ethiopia's conflict spills over border as thousands flee
"This week, he sent federal troops into a province of his own country. Hundreds are reported dead in the northern region of Tigre and refugees air spilling over the border into Sudan. So what explains the shift from peace to conflict? Michelle Gavin is a former ambassador and senior fellow for African studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. Ambassador Gavin We're talking about the Ethiopian province of Tigre, where the violence is happening. It's squeezed into the northwest corner of Ethiopia. Figure it straddles the border of Eritrea to its north. What is so important about Tigre relative to the rest of Ethiopia? Well for many years, the Tigre and People's Liberation Front that sort of dominant political and military entity in Tigre was really first among equals in the ruling coalition for all of Ethiopia so to Graham's played an incredibly prominent role in Ethiopian governance, politics, security But with the rise of the new Prime Minister Ahmed There's been a bit of a re balancing in Ethiopia. And this is kind of opened up contest station from ethnicities across this incredibly diverse country. And there has been kind of widespread feeling that for too long, a small minority from Tigre had too much control of the federal government. So there's political tension between Tigre and Addis Ababa. Are there also historical grievances between two grand central government that we need to mention? I mean, is there a back story here? Tigre is now fighting at us. There's a lot of back story Ethiopian and certainly to Gran's were and incredibly, they weren't just dominant, politically and in the security services for many years, certainly under the leadership of Prime minister malice, But they also suffered most in the long and very costly in blood and treasure war with your tria. So there is there's also you know, a sense of probably grievance in that sense. Abby's come to power they feel targeted by new personnel choices by new policy choices. What maybe others in Ethiopia see as a re balancing the Tigre ins can often feel like persecution despite the tremendous sacrifices that they have made for the country. There are reports from Tigre oven. Ethiopian air campaign heavy bombardment at times. I mean, what's at stake here as far as you can tell ambassador Is it a possible civil war between two grands and Ethiopian troops? There is Tigre saying. We've had enough. We want independence. How should we interpret what's going on? We should absolutely be worried about a civil war, which I don't think would necessarily be contained just Teo, the Tigre region, giving all of the other tensions and actors. So what's at stake? You know the wellbeing of over 110 million Ethiopians. Regional stability. Conflict in Ethiopia has a very high chance of drawing in Eritrea. Sudan, tipping the balance of Sudan zone very fragile transition. Ethiopia's incredibly important actor in trying to bring stability to Somalia to South Sudan distracted and weekend. Ethiopia is really quite devastating, Tio this entire horn region which is strategically really significant, and there are a lot of actors external to Africa. In the Gulf, the Chinese and from the West, all of whom care deeply about stability in this region, so the prospect of drawing others in of proxy conflict it's really a powder keg, and the consequence will not be confined solely to what's happening inside Ethiopia's borders. Michelle Gavin, senior fellow for Africa Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. She also served as ambassador to Botswana from 2011 to 14. Ambassador Gavin Thank you very much. Thank you.
Latest On A Military Conflict In Ethiopia
"Prime minister, Maybe Achmed won the Nobel Peace Prize. And yet less than a week ago, he launched military operations in the country's northern region. Now that conflict is threatening to turn into an all out civil war. NPR's later Peralta walks us through what's happening and later to begin. Give us a sense of why the prime minister had won the Nobel Prize. He changed everything in Ethiopia. I mean at home, he ushered in a raft of democratic reforms, and then he also made peace with Ethiopia's mortal enemy, Eritrea. During his Nobel lecture, he talked about how he fought in that war, and he called it the epitome of hell. Let's listen to a bit of that speech of Sin Brothers slaughtering brothers on the battlefield. I have seen all their men, woman and Children trembling in terror under the really short ofthe bullets and alterations. You are makes for betterment, heartless and savage mint, he says. War makes for Bitterman heartless and savage men and when I became to power, people on the streets of Ethiopia told me that he was sent by God and now He has started this new conflict in the same part of the country where this war between Ethiopia and Eritrea happened and his air forces now bombing targets in his own country. What's the cause of the conflict? And at this point, how bad is the fighting? So it's complicated because, but it's essentially a power struggle. Document came to power in 2018 after huge popular uprising, and one of the things that he did was dismantled Ethiopia's ruling party, which had run the country with violence and brutality for almost 30 years, the guys who ran the show, where the TP left the Ti Guy People's Liberation Front. And they were sidelined. Since then, Abby has accused them of destabilizing the country by stoking ethnic tensions. Abby's allies have accused them of assassinations, including one attempt against Abby himself in last week. The government says that the TPLF sent forces to attack a federal military base, and that's when Abby ordered his army into the ticket region. Now how bad the fighting is, has been hard to report because the government has shut down phone lines and the Internet is often the region. I'm still waiting for a visa. Reuters, which does have reporters on the ground eyes reporting, hundreds are dead on each side. Sudan State media has also said that many refugees have started fleeing to their country. So it's serious. What are the TV I fighter saying at this point, it's It's a lot of bravado. They're calling the government dictatorial and treasonous. And those are the same words that the government is using against them. And they say that they're open to talk. But at the same time, you know, they also say that if they're hit hard, they plan on hitting back Justus hard. Either. We talked about the threat of civil war. How higher the stakes here they're huge. Some analysts say that this could be like Yugoslavia where Ethiopia breaks up in Ethiopia, by the way, is The second largest country in Africa by population, and the conflict also has the potential to draw in Eritrea and even Sudan, and if it's protracted, it can really destabilize the region that is already super vulnerable. And we can't really think of thiss as just a regional government against a powerful federal government. I mean, this is really one well armed, well trained military against another well armed, well trained military in a really fragile A place in Africa. That's NPR's ater. Peralta speaking to us from Nairobi. Thank you. Thank you. A

"It's just giving you an update of the situation. They're trained now. Which is very sad to find this out. Basically the first president of eritrea. Like i said i was there for independence so their independence days may twenty four and the first one was nine hundred ninety three well. He's turned out to be basically a complete dictator a whole. Yeah i makes me so sad because the people were so happy time. But i guess apparently his twenty six years of being a dictator president. There's like no civil rights. There is no legislator legislation. there's no judicial like independent judicial rights. Like it's the it's with. I guess now trays known as the north korea of africa which is heartbreaking. And they'll just arrest people. Are you know for whatever nyman tell them many times and throw them in jail for years or even just literally disappear not seen again and also it's law that every every eritrean at the age of eighteen has to do at least two years of military service risk but many of these people can kind of shift over to civil know working privately and publicly building things as forced laborers and also with the when they get arrested like set torture and people go missing or just get killed. It's it's so sad i guess. Twelve percent of the population of Has laughed so they have a high concentration of refugees eritrean refugees around the world because of this bastard basically and also in the war with their trachea. A third of the soldiers were women. It's rather heartbreaking. So if you like. I have a problem with cut to countries with like a moral problem. Obviously i don't like to support dictators in any which way and that's the reason why for example i have never i haven't been to north korea or russia or china and i'm actually an degrees in chinese medicine but i fell in love with tibetan people and plus the tries a lot of other pretty bad crop especially human rights..
