December 19, 1985

Forced migration has killed more than 100,000 people in Ethiopia, a group of Paris-based doctors said. Rony Braumann, president of the humanitarian group Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders), which was expelled from Ethiopia earlier this month after making similar charges, told a news conference in Geneva that refugee centers in Ethiopia resemble concentration camps. Claude Malhuret, director general of the group, said a proposal to move about 1.75 million people could result in the deaths of another 300,000 refugees. A Ethiopian government official, who was at the news conference, dismissed the doctors' statement as "completely false."
