Six armed members of the Eritrean Defense Force were apprehended by residents of the Sudanese village of Alhafuir and were deferred to the Sudanese forces in Kassala.
According to news sources from the area, the Sudanese authorities are reported to be investigating the purpose for their travel to the village.
Although the ANAGAZAWI news network indicates these armed forces might have accidentally crossed the border, there are speculations that they might have been sent on a mission by the Eritrean government to kidnap wanted refugees in Kassala.
Others still speculate they [the armed personnel] might have travelled with their weapons to protect themselves from any kidnappings and other repercussions they might have faced until they get to a safe place where they could seek asylum.
