Impact of recent border conflict

Has the recent flaring up of the border conflict had much impact in Asmara? Is the opinion here that Asmara has or has not not become less safe for Europeans and Americans over the past year or so?

I've been meaning to get to Asmara for the last few years, but never quite made it. I might make it this year, but I confess to being slightly concerned about reports that the current kidnapping of British diplomats in Ethiopia may have been by Afar "rebels" crossing the brorder from Eritrea.

Asmara is one of the safest cities in africa. The British diplomats were kidnapped by an afar rebels from Ethiopia. So if you want to visit Eritrea summer is the best time.
