  • Kenya, Tanzania enter into diplomatic row over Ethiopians

    (EthioTime) Kenya and Tanzania entered into diplomatic row after Tanzania dropped 74 Ethiopians who had just finished their jail sentences in the country at the Kenyan border in Taveta on Tuesday.

    Tanzanian authorities dropped ex-convicts in Kenya instead of deporting them to Ethiopia while Kenyan immigration officers at the border condemned the act and threatened to send them back to Tanzania.

    The officers said Kenya would not take over Tanzania's burden under international law, Standard reported. This also came a few days after Kenya deported 8 Taiwanese who had been acquitted of wire fraud charges to China where they were held for three days, resulting in an ugly row between the two countries.
