Eritrea will not let young men leave the country, run under "Marxist" principles

The little country Eritrea is a bit of a Marxist throwback, according to a story by Jeffrey Gettleman in the New York Times on Sunday June 20.

Young men are forbidden from living the country and kept in servitude to the government. Those caught trying to leave face torture.

Nevertheless, some escape to the Sudan, which does not have a particularly good reputation, as with Darfur and with its having housed Osama bin Laden.
