Today in European cynicism

Question: If you're an Eritrean refugee stuck in Sudan, what's your quickest and safest route to Europe?

Answer: Being handed over to the Italian government on the word of gullible intelligence officials that you're a refugee-smuggling mastermind by a Sudanese government eager to show that it's Europe's new best friend in closing down migrant routes.

Downside: That same push by the Sudanese government has also involved deporting Eritrean refugees back to Eritrea.
