Ethiopia’s dangerously-evolving situation

The reality obtaining in Ethiopia right at this moment is that no individual, whether a parent, neighbour, a brother, or cousin, or unrelated citizen would be indifferent or unaffected by stories of security forces entering universities, dormitories too, at any time — as is repeatedly happening these days in the two largest regions of the country in terms of size and populations — eventually beating and killing students.

This is not a fiction. It has been happening in Ethiopian universities, mostly in Amhara and Oromia Regions.

WASHINGTON — The head of U.S. Africa Command has asked for an additional investigation into whether civilians were killed during a deadly August raid in Somalia involving American and Somali forces.

Army Col. Mark Cheadle, a spokesman for Africa Command, said Wednesday that Marine Gen. Thomas Waldhauser has asked the Naval Criminal Investigative Service to look into the details of the raid in Bariire village by Somali troops supported by U.S. special operations forces. The decision comes just two weeks after Africa Command released a statement discounting reports that several civilians, including children, were killed in the attack.

Ethiopia faces a social media blackout as clashes intensify between ethnic groups in various parts of the country.

Facebook and Twitter were down on Tuesday after reports emerged of killings on Monday by security forces in the Oromia region.

Oromia regional spokesperson Addisu Arega said the violence in Chelenqo town killed six people and was being investigated. On Facebook he called the victims “innocent civilians.”

The Addis Standard news site reported 15 killed, including women and children. The Associated Press was not able to independently verify the reports.

Oromia regional officials have long accused special police from the neighbouring Somali region of committing atrocities against ethnic Oromos. The regions also have had bitter border disputes.

US Embassy, Addis Abeba

We are troubled and saddened by reports of violence that has resulted in deaths and injuries in the town of Chelenko and at several universities over the past two days. We extend our condolences to the families and friends of the victims.

It is important that the Ethiopian government ensure the safety of all Ethiopian citizens, and hold accountable those responsible for violence.

We encourage the people of Ethiopia to uphold their admirable and longstanding tradition of respect for their country’s ethnic diversity and its tradition of peaceful co-existence, and to seek constructive means to raise concerns and resolve their differences.
