Were the killed 58 or 23? Govt, Amnesty International don’t agree on the number
ETHIOPIA: At least 58 people have been killed in the ethnic violence in Addis Ababa, according to an Amnesty International researcher, citing a figure more than double the government estimate of 23 dead.
Fisseha Tekle, a Nairobi-based researcher with Amnesty International, said he had compiled a similar tally of 58 dead.
The violence began last week in the run-up to Saturday’s return of the once-banned Oromo Liberation Front, a rebel group that returned to Ethiopia following political reforms introduced by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.
