      Health of Eritrean Patriarch deteriorates

      The 85-year-old Abuna Antonios suffers from diabetes. On February 27, the
      Patriarch had a seizure and was rushed to the capital city's Hospital Orot.

      Despite the fact that currently Abuna Antonios has already returned home,
      his condition is critical. The third Patriarch of the Eritrean Church,
      Abuna Antonios has been under house arrest since 2008. His resistance to
      state interference in Church affairs is the reason that in August 2005 his
      role in the Church became purely ceremonial. Abuna Antonios was deposed at
      a secret meeting of the Synod of the Eritrean Church under pressure from the
      authorities. The Eritrean bishops made Abuna Dioscoros the 4th Patriarch of
      Eritrea.
