CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand — A Myanmar national who jumped off a cargo ship into freezing waters off the coast of New Zealand will be allowed to stay in the country while his case is processed by immigration officials. The man, 27, was rescued last week off the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island, near the city of Gisborne. New Zealand police said they began a search and rescue operation on Nov. 2 after the man, a crew member, was reported missing from the ship. Behrouz Boochani, a Kurdish-Iranian writer and refugee advocate in New Zealand, said the country had the capacity to do more. “If we couldn’t get an increased quota with Afghanistan, I think it’s unlikely we’ll get one with Myanmar,” he said.

On Tuesday, the U.N. said the 16 local employees had been detained in recent days in Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa. All are ethnic Tigrayans, who witnesses say have been swept up by the thousands since the state of emergency was declared in response to reports that Tigray forces who have been fighting Ethiopian forces were approaching the capital. The government says it is detaining people suspected of supporting the Tigray forces. The new U.N. statement said the dozens of drivers detained are of “different ethnicities,” but they include Tigrayans. Now the Tigray forces who dominated the national government for 27 years before a political falling-out with Abiy, the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize winner, are approaching Ethiopia’s capital.
