Asmarino would like to make an unreserved apology for an unverified story it ran a few days ago about a proposed memorial/funeral in Asmara thought to have been organised by the families of the victims of the Lampedusa tragedy. In hindsight, Asmarino could have tried harder to verify the source of the story that "emanated" from Eritrea, but due to time constraints, we deemed it necessarily to put the story out into the public domain and we did so in good faith. We would like to take this occasion also to remind  those in the diaspora who submit  articles to Asmarino to follow our posting guidelines:
