In excess of 12,000 undocumented Ethiopian transients had been flown back to their nation since the coronavirus episode, the International Migration Organization said. 


Addressing Anadolu Agency, Alemayehu Seifeselassie, IOM's correspondence official in Ethiopia, stated: "The returnees are for the most part from Sudan, The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Djibouti and Kenya." 


"Since April 2020, the all out number of Ethiopians who have returned is more than 12,032," he said. 


"We anticipate that the arrival should proceed over the coming weeks," he included. 


The returnees, as indicated by reports, incorporate 11 Ethiopians who endure the grim episode that happened in March in Mozambique where 64 Ethiopians were discovered dead in a payload holder on a truck destined for South Africa. 


More than one million Ethiopian transients work in the Middle East, a significant number of whom are undocumented and now abandoned after the episode of the pandemic. 


A month ago, Saudi Arabia flew several vagrants back to Ethiopia. A first Saudi flight conveying many transients was denied arriving at the Addis Ababa Bole International Airport, with Ethiopia asserting it had not been educated in advance about the activity.
