Ethiopia forces kill, rape in clashes with protesters – Washington Post

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia — A rights group is accusing Ethiopia’s security forces of carrying out serious rights abuses during recent protests in the country’s Oromia region.

The Ethiopia-based Human Rights Council said Monday that it found evidence of extrajudicial killings, tortures, beatings, illegal detentions, forced disappearances and arson attacks during and after the protests.

In November, protests erupted in the Oromia region over a proposed plan to expand the municipal boundary of the capital, Addis Ababa, which some believed would lead to the displacement of farmers.

Authorities have since abandoned the plan but clashes continue. The Human Right Council said at least 103 people have been killed.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn recently told lawmakers he is “apologetic for the death and destruction” that happened during the protests.

    This days newspaper business is in doom and gloom standing because of internet news competion.
