The government has shut down five rural clinics in Tsorona, Mendefera, Segeniety and Ingela village in Anseba region.
The clinics had been giving primary health care in rural areas under the supervision of the Catholic Church of Eritrea for long periods of time.
Erena sources say that the shutdown comes after the government ordered all schools, clinics run by mosques or churches to be placed under the direct supervision of the Ministries of Education and Health.
Meanwhile, many families are trying to find the places of imprisonment of students, board members and some parents of Asmara’s Diya’a Islamic Schools
The government is still holding tens of them incommunicado, and without trial, after the demonstrations at Diya’a Islamic School last November.
