It all started when Najm Al Iryani, the former student, posted a long and detailed Facebook appeal saying he was in the airport being forced to go back to Yemen, with security forces accompanying him until he boards on the airplane. He also posted screenshots of emails exchanged between him and the AUC over the case.

Najm mentioned in the post his reluctance toward posting. However, he said he had no choice after being trapped by security forces in the airport and he has to appeal help from anyone.

Najm, who was granted a scholarship to complete his higher studies in the AUC before being dismissed, appealed in the post to anyone who can help and stop his deportation to a war-zone, where he is possibly going to be killed. Najm also mentioned that all his family members; his sisters and parents were killed in Yemen, which does not give him a place to go if he went back to the country.

In the post, Najm went to mention all the suspicious circumstances he had been facing recently, from security forces raiding his dorm earlier in the weekend and searching through his personal stuff, to seizing his passport and preventing him from going out the university campus so he will not try to escape deportation.

DR Congo blame Unending Ebola Outbreak on Violence , Community Mistrust.

Published

on

DR Congo Ministry of Health spokesperson Jessica Ilunga has declared that violence and community mistrust have continued to hamper all efforts to control and end the fresh Ebola outbreak, which started Aug. 1.



Though according to the World Health Organization the number of new Ebola cases has dropped slightly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as there are 33% fewer cases to date in February compared with the same time period in December per STAT’s Helen Branswell, but some experts warn Axios that there remain signs that this outbreak is far from over.

Meanwhile, some experts warn that, that doesn’t mean the world’s second-largest Ebola outbreak on record is yet under control, and in fact it could simply be moving to new areas of the sprawling country.

Johns Hopkins’ public health expert Jennifer Nuzzo maintains there are several reasons people should continue to view this outbreak as a cause for concern.

However, Nuzzo said Congo needs more than money from the international community and the U.S. in particular. Safety concerns have largely caused the CDC to limit its Ebola experts to the capital city of Kinshasa, where some have returned after being evacuated during an uptick in election-related violence, Nuzzo added that Now is the time for the U.S. to send them into the field.
