U.S. Congresswoman Bass Calls on Eritrea to Free American Citizen

Ciham Ali Abdu was born in Los Angeles and grew up in Eritrea. In December 2012, Eritrean officials apprehended her when she attempted to leave the country without a mandatory exit visa. Her family hasn't seen or heard from her since, despite attempts to learn about her whereabouts. An appeal for her release has been issued Rep. Karen Bass, who chairs the House Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations.
