Spike in the number of Eritrean refugee arrivals

Northern Ethiopia continues to receive large numbers of Eritrean refugees, including unaccompanied minors. The number of daily refugee arrivals spiked since the first week of September. At present, more than 200 Eritreans cross the Ethiopian border each day.

The sudden spike in arrivals cause congestion at the reception centre. Unaccompanied minors and separated children are spending more than one week at the centre, adding to protection concerns. UNHCR and the Government refugee agency, ARRA, are trying to address this gap. Some 19,000 refugees were registered in 2014, including 1,836 in September and 1,700 in October. As of 16 October, Ethiopia hosted 104,343 Eritrean refugees.
