Twice a year in Syracuse an event called My Lucky Tummy invites people from all over the world to cook food from their home country. It’s a celebration of local tastes and international culture. In the latest event, more than 350 people gathered in the basement of a local church to share food from Vietnam, Iran, Laos, Ethiopia, and Savannah. WAER's Kijin Higashibaba brings us the story of the chef from Ethiopia and the people who enjoyed her food.

About 50 refugees from Ethiopia took to the streets of Syracuse Friday to try and get the U.S. government to stop attacks against people in their homeland.  People who fled violence years ago are seeing their relatives in danger.  They're crying out to urge Washington to stop government backed violence in their African Homeland.   Habiba Boru came to Syracuse 15 years ago to escape similar attacks.
