Eritrea Accuses Ethiopia of Blocking Satellite Transmissions - Bloomberg
Eritrea’s government accused neighboring Ethiopia of jamming its satellite broadcasts and threatened to take legal action, the Information Ministry said.
Ethiopia has been warned by the Arab Satellite Communications Organization that the interference is illegal, the Asmara-based ministry said in a statement on its website.
Ethiopian government spokesmen Bereket Simon and Shimeles Kemal didn’t answer calls to their mobile phones seeking comment.
Eritrea, formerly an Ethiopian province, won independence after a 1993 referendum. The two countries fought a 1998-2000 border war that killed 70,000 people, according to the Brussels- based International Crisis Group.
