Ethiopian Authorities have repatriated 100 children from Saudi Arabia as part of a push to repatriate tens of thousands of Ethiopians from the kingdom.

It should be recalled that News Central reported that the Ethiopian Government was set to repatriate 100000 migrants in Saudi Arabia, amid reports of undocumented citizens in the middle east country.

Many of the Ethiopians in the Middle East are undocumented migrant workers who have been held in deplorable conditions.

According to a statement from Ethiopia’s women and social affairs ministry, about 5,000 migrant labourers had been returned in the week since the operation began.

However, it is unclear whether they will be provided with a long-term source of income once they have settled in.

Meanwhile, about 120 migrants have been evacuated from Libya to Rwanda in the first of such flight of the year.

Men, women, and children, the youngest of whom was less than a year old, were amongst the 120 migrants who were repatriated.
