Eritreans are celebrating 25 years of independence, which they gained on 24 May 1991.
The Eritreans – who fought a 30-year war for independence against the far larger and better-equipped Ethiopian army – are in celebratory mood, despite the country being criticised by human rights groups for its lack of democracy, free press and forced conscription.

The BBC’s Mary Harper is in Eritrea, and visited an exhibition about the war.
