Ethiopia charges 22 over inciting violence and terror plots
Ethiopia charges 22 over terror plot after 'receiving instructions from Oromo Liberation Front'
Some 22 people are charged as Ethiopia tackles 'anti-peace' forces under state of emergency.
Ethiopia has charged 22 people for allegedly inciting violence in schools in Oromia, the country's largest state. The Federal High Court in the capital Addis Ababa charged the defendants for damaging government and public properties and planning to carry out terror acts.
The court claimed the individuals acted after receiving instructions from Kenya and Norway-based leaders of the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF), which the government labelled as a terrorist organisation.
Among other things, protesters called for the release of political prisoners, and demonstrated against perceived disenfranchisement and lack of inclusion in the political process as the government is dominated by the Tigray minority.
The government, which often blamed "outside forces" including from Eritrea and Egypt for the protests, denied the allegations and said it will use the new measures to co-ordinate security forces against "anti-peace elements" that aim to destabilise the country.
