Andargachew TsigeEthiopia has called on Yemen to extradite the leader of an outlawed opposition group to face terrorism charges.

Andargachew Tsige, secretary-general of Ginbot 7, was arrested while transiting through Sanaa airport last week, according to a statement from the group.

The Ethiopian government welcomed the arrest, saying “he is a criminal, and he definitely will have his day in court”.

Getachew Reda, government spokesman, told AFP news agency it would be “the right thing” if Yemen extradited Tsige, accusing him of plotting terror attacks in Ethiopia.

“He’s the head of a terrorist organisation who has been flaunting his leadership for terror operations inside Ethiopia,” he said.

Ginbot 7 said Tsige was detained illegally and called for his release.
