At least 23 dead in weekend of ethnic violence in Ethiopia
[News24] Ethnic violence in Ethiopia left 23 people dead at the weekend, state media reported on Monday, as protests against the killings gripped the capital Addis Ababa where an angry crowd gathered in the city centre.

The state-owned Ethiopia News Agency (ENA) said an organised mob carried out a spree of murder and looting in and around Burayu town, leaving 23 people dead and 886 displaced, citing Oromia regional police commissioner Alemayehu Ejigu.

ENA reported that over 70 people had been arrested.

On Twitter, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed's chief of staff, Fitsum Arega, said the leader "strongly condemns the killings and acts of violence against innocent citizens."

"These cowardly attacks represent a grave concern to the unity and solidarity of our people and will be met with an appropriate response," he said, without providing a toll.
