Read Africa’s North Korea and the Most Repressive Nation on Earth, this is Eritrea, by Worthy News, at persecution.org.
"Isaias Afewerki has been given a title of an "unhinged dictator" in a diplomatic cable in 2009. Eritrea is known as one of the most "repressive" nations on earth due to the extreme human rights violations frequently carried out, especially in Eritrea's prisons. As many as 3,000 Christians are believed to be held in these prisons without trial or charge. Many prisoners are locked up in shipping containers in extremely hot conditions in the desert, and are sometimes even left there for days, with hands and feet bound, in the helicopter position."
