Sudanese Detain 54 Ethiopian Jews

Sudanese authorities have recently detained 54 Ethiopian Jews who crossed the border into Sudan, according to a Sudanese newspaper which was quoted here last Friday by Al Hamishmar. The Sudanese paper, All-Ittihad Al-Asbui, reported that the supervisor of refugee affairs in Sudan said the country’s security authorities will continue to hold the Ethiopian Jews until a decision is made regarding their fate. There has been no independent confirmation of the detention.
