A multi-ethnic country located along the Horn of Africa, Eritrea borders Sudan, Ethiopia and Djibouti, with a large stretch of Red Sea coastal territory. Independent by war from Ethiopia in 1991, the single party state has failed to move towards a genuine democratic system. Eritrea has severe restrictions on press freedom, with no independent media outlets permitted to operate, as well as suppression of rights to speech, assembly and association for political opposition and reports of extensive religious persecution.
