Ethiopia says protest death toll at 78, arrests over 400

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The office of Ethiopia’s prime minister issued a statement saying more than 400 people have been arrested during investigations into ethnic and religious violence that left 78 people dead last week.

The unrest quickly devolved into ethnic and religious clashes that killed dozens.

Protests against Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed erupted in Addis Ababa and in Ethiopia’s Oromia region on October 23 after a prominent activist accused security forces of trying to orchestrate an attack against him, a claim police denied.
