Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, February 5, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 27 Interpreting the News World concern grows as Ethiopia moves toward civil war By KEVIN DOYLE The Canadian Press As the North African state of Ethiopia edges toward a civil war, fears are growing in international circles that other countries in the'area may be plunged into the strife as well. In Ethiopia's northeastern province of Eritrea, strate- gically located on the Red Sea leading to the Suez canal, separatist guerrilla forces 'have started a running battle with a full army division of the central government. Britain and the United Stales have begun an emergency airlift of their nationals from the embattled area and correspondents in the area are writing of the possibility of the whole of Ethiopia breaking up if the rebels continue with their ear- ly successes. The three million people of Eritrea, informed observers say, are united behind the separatist leadership and the military government in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa appears to be in serious disarray. But the greatest fear in Western diplomatic forums is that if the struggle is prolonged, other states, such as Somalia, Libya, the Sudan and perhaps Kenya, would feel .compelled to get in- volved. Eritrea was an Italian colony from the late 19th cen- tury until the British defeated Italy in Ethiopia in 1941. It was under British administra- tion until 1952 when the United Nations voted to allow federa- tion with Ethiopia leaving it with considerable autonomy and its own legislature. But irU962, recently depos- ed Ethiopian emperor Haile Selassie ended the federation and declared Eritrea to be ful- ly integrated with the country's other 13 provinces. the aim of the rebels, who have been battling the central government off and on for 13 years, now appears 'to be a sufficient display of strength to gain the support of other strong secessionist forces in the neighboring province of Tigre. If this happened, it would mean the whole northeastern third of Ethiopia would be fighting to secede. Nobody can say with ac- curacy what would happen next. But the interests of a number of neighboring states would be gravely affected. Somalia, which borders Ethiopia to the north and east, claims sovereignty over large parts of Eritrea and backs the rebel movement. GROUND COFFEE Edwards Regular or Fine Grind 1 Ib.
