The stowaway was found after the plane landed in Sweden just before 7am. The flight time for journeys between Addis Ababa and Stockholm is typically around eight hours.
The man, who is understood to be in his 20s and was hoping to seek asylum in Sweden, was discovered when staff unloaded luggage from the plane, a spokesperson for Swedavia, which operates Sweden’s main airports, told The Local.
He was found when they were unloading the cargo from the plane. They opened the compartment and there he was. He was not inside a suitcase, he was sitting down in some way,” said Henrik Kelfve.
I can’t recall any case like this at Swedish airports happening before.”
Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet, which broke the story, reported that the man was checked over by medical staff at Arlanda airport soon after his flight landed.
He seems to feel pretty okay. A nurse is looking after him right now,” Anders Mattsson, a duty officer at Stockholm police told the newspaper just after 10am.
An hour later, Swedavia confirmed that the man was in police custody.
After we found him we delivered him to the officers. They have him right now and will be asking him further questions,” Kelfve told The Local.
The TT newswire is reporting that the man told officers that he was employed at Addis Ababa’s international airport and had therefore managed to secure access to plane while it was on the runway.
We have talked to him via an interpreter and the purpose of the journey here was to seek asylum. He is not suspected of any crime and despite his spectacular route to Sweden his case will now be handled in the same was as other asylum seekers,” Stefan Färdigs, a police spokesperson at Arlanda airport told TT.
Arlanda is Sweden’s largest and busiest airport, with flights to more than 180 destinations.Sweden was second only to Germany as the top recipient of refugees in the European Union last year.In 2014, it granted asylum to 35,000 people out 81,000 who had asked for its protection.
Asylum applications from Ethiopians have boomed in the first seven months of 2015, shooting up by 140 percent over the same period last year.
OIC Summit Calls For Standby Troops Contribution To Protect Palestinians
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan sent out a strong message against Israeli violence that martyred at least 62 Palestinians during the ongoing extraordinary summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Friday.
A large number of heads of state and government, including Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, King Abdullah II of Jordan, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Afghan President Ashraf Gani, Kuwaiti Amir Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah and Mauritanian President Mohammad Veled Abdulaziz participate in the summit meeting.
Erdogan, OIC Secretary General Yousef al-Othaimeen, King Abdullah II of Jordan and Hamdallah are expected to deliver speeches at the ongoing conference.
The event will enable the Muslim leaders to show a dedicated and joint stance against Israeli actions. A final declaration will be released afterwards.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu will also
A total of 15 OIC members state foreign ministers are attending the gathering, including from Iran, Bangladesh, Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Azerbaijan, Tunisia, Lebanon, Iraq and Egypt.
Monday’s protests in Gaza coincided with Israel’s 70th anniversary – an event Palestinians refer to as Nakba or the “Catastrophe” – and the relocation of the US Embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Since the mass Gaza rallies began on March 30, more than 100 Palestinian protesters have been martyred by Israeli army gunfire.
Last week, the Israeli government claimed that the ongoing Gaze protests constitute a “state of war” in which international humanitarian law does not apply.
Uganda says military operation in Somalia still on despite challenges
The Ugandan military said its peacekeeping mission in Somalia is still ongoing, refuting reports that the troops are not making progress.
Despite some challenges which are being addressed, the AMISOM remains on course and significant successes have since 2007 been achieved, Brig. Richard Karemire, the Ugandan military spokesman said in a tweet.
AMISOM is an acronym of the African Union Mission in Somalia.
Karemire was responding to a lead story in the local Daily Monitor on Monday quoting David Muhoozi, Uganda’s military chief as saying that the military was stuck in the Somali mission.
The report alleged that Ugandan soldiers deployed in the Horn of Africa country to fight the al-Shabab militants are stranded due to underfunding, logistical deficits and a challenged Somali national force.
Uganda was the first to deploy troops in Somalia in March 2007 and still has the largest number of soldiers in the 22,000-strong African Union peacekeeping operation. Other troop contributors include Burundi, Djibouti, Ethiopia and Kenya.
The troop contributing countries met in Uganda in February this year and urged the international community to support the mission warning that the military gains made may be reversed
Sierra Leone deploys 160 police officers to Somalia
A contingent of 145 police officers from Sierra Leone arrived in Somalia yesterday as part of a surge capacity that will implement policing programmes in south central Somalia.
All the 145 officers from the Formed Police Unit (FPU), travelled to the port city of Kismayo to join an advance team of 15 officers who had arrived earlier.
This is Sierra Leone’s biggest police contingent to Somalia since it started deploying peacekeepers to the Horn of Africa country. The additional officers have been deployed in response to the United Nations Security Council Resolution adopted in 2017, which approved an increase to a maximum of 1,040, in the number of police officers serving under the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM). The additional officers will start supporting their Somali counterparts in keeping law and order in the outstations of the Jubbaland Administration.
“Their coming is going to be a boost to the Jubbaland State Police Force. In 2016, we trained 600 police officers in Jubbaland and the Sierra Leone FPU will help them build and empower their policing operations,” Ms. Christine Alalo, the Acting AMISOM Police Commissioner, who received the contingent at the airport said.
