Hooligans, who tried to intrude at Eritrean Embassy in
Washington, DC, Miserably failed
29 January 2013 – Today, a few hooligans attempted a copycat attack similar to recent incidents
in Europe. Their attempt to enter the Embassy of Eritrea and “occupy” it was foiled.
The monkey see, monkey do, act was foiled by a swift combined efforts of the Embassy staff,
law enforcement and the vigilant members of the Eritrean Community in DC area.
Three main culprits were arrested and the rest were documented (their personal information
recorded) by the police department. This group of disruptive individuals was given a warning not
to come close to the Embassy premise, lest they risk being arrested for trespassing.
Many members of the Eritrean community in the Washington Metropolitan area showed in a
matter of minutes ready to defend the Embassy and its staff.
It is to be recalled, that the very same group of people attempted to disrupt a peaceful community
meeting in September 2012 and were humiliated by the Eritrean community members and
Arlington Police department.
