Up to 3,000 Eritreans are leaving their country each month to escape human rights violations perpetrated by the government and its security agencies, according to a United Nations human rights expert.

Sheila Keetharuth, the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Eritrea is urging the Eritrean Government to stop human rights violations.

UN Radio's Patrick Maigua spoke by phone with Ms. Keetharuth, who has just returned from a visit to Tunisia and Malta where she met with Eritreans in exile.
