Description

The United Nations human rights chief has urged Ethiopia to allow international observers to investigate the killings of protesters over the weekend. The UN says it's concerned about the excessive use of force by security forces in the country. Several anti government demonstrators from the Oromiya and Amhara regions were reportedly shot dead on Saturday. They were demanding the release of jailed opposition politicians. Unrest has been flaring in the Oromiya for several months. Government had planned to allocate farmland surrounding the regional capital for development. Authorities scrapped the scheme in January, but protests flared again over the continued detention of opposition demonstrators
