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.

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.

ESAT News (November 21, 2017) A search for a group of soldiers whose numbers is estimated to be at least 30 has continued in Southern Ethiopia along the country’s border with Kenya, according to ESAT’s sources.

The group of soldiers lost communication with their base and disappeared on Monday.

A search operation by two teams have not bear fruit thus far.

According sources, officers put the radio communication operator Corporal Regassa, under arrest accusing him of giving two conflicting information to his seniors on the whereabouts of the soldiers when they lost communication with the base.

Tension runs high within the 10th division of the army in Southern Ethiopia following the disappearance of the soldiers whom senior officers now believe that they might have deserted the army.

Desertion in the Ethiopian army has increased in recent years with soldiers expressing dismay over corruption, nepotism and ethnic marginalization within the army. Tigrayan officers and generals represent 90% of the top brass creating resentment among other members of the force who are ethnic majority.
