The American University of Cairo has been under fire during the weekend after news stories circulated online in regard to the deportation of a former Yemeni student.
FOLLOW US ON:
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.

Abiy Ahmed wins the 2019 Nobel Peace Award
Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed won the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for immersly efforts to end two decades of hostility with longtime enemy Eritrea.
Though Africa’s youngest leader still faces big challenges, he has in under two years in power begun political and economic reforms that promise a better life for many in impoverished Ethiopia and restored ties with Eritrea that had been frozen since a 1998-2000 border war.
“We are proud as a nation,” the prime minister’s office said in a statement, hailing a “collective win for all Ethiopians, and a call to strengthen our resolve in making Ethiopia – the new horizon of hope – a prosperous nation for all.”
It said the prize was meant to recognize “all the stakeholders working for peace and reconciliation in Ethiopia and in the East and Northeast African regions.”
The Nobel Committee’s decision appeared designed to encourage the peace process, echoing the 1994 peace prize shared by Israeli and Palestinian leaders and the 1993 award for moves towards reconciliation in South Africa, said Dan Smith, head of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
