The mountainous landscape on the edge of the Dankalia Depression, south of the capital Asmara, Eritrea, pictured on Wednesday, May. 2, 2007. .Eritrea is becoming increasingly Isolated as tension mounts with its neighbor and long time enemy Ethiopia. US-backed Ethiopia accuses Eritrea of helping insurgents in Somalia and the Ogaden region and recent months have seen  a massive troop build-up along the disputed Ethiopian-Ertirean border. With the ousted Somali Islamic Courts finding sanctuary in the capital Asmara, and the US State Department threatening to designate Eritrea a state sponsor of terrorism, the country's future looks more and more unstable.
