Orthodox Ethiopians criticise PM Abiy over deadly clashes

Orthodox Ethiopians criticise PM Abiy over deadly clashesEthiopia’s influential Orthodox church on Sunday criticised Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s response to ethnic and religious clashes that left nearly 70 dead, saying he was failing to protect its members. Violence erupted in the capital Addis Ababa and the outlying Oromia region on Wednesday after a prominent activist accused security forces of trying to orchestrate an attack against him — a claim police officials denied. It quickly morphed into clashes and a police official said Friday that 67 people had died in Oromia.
