Tens of prisoners are being transferred to Eritrea to be detained in Dahlak Island, according to Radio Erena sources.
Although there is very little details about the identity of the prisoners, the sources further add that they were taken to underground dungeons on the island where Eritreans had previously been incarcerated on various charges and allegations.
According to the sources, the prison on Dahlak Island cannot house more than 200 prisoners at any given time.
Previously, the whereabouts of the prisoners had remained unknown after they had been transported to Asmara on board Ethiopian Airlines flights and by road.
