200 human smugglers have been detained by the Ethiopian government as part of its effort to control the number of citizens illegally migrated to Europe.

Ethiopian Federal Affairs Minister, Shiferaw Teklemariam told the Ethiopian News Agency that the government is looking for 80 other human smugglers who are suspected of conducting overseas operations.

Ethiopia and Eritrea are the source of many of the migrants making the perilous journey by sea to Europe, often via Sudan and then Libya.

In recent news, the Ethiopia official announced that it was drafting a new law that will punishment citizens convicted of human smuggling.

Ethiopia’s current laws stipulate prison terms ranging from 5 to 20 years for crimes related to human smuggling and fines not exceeding $2500.
