Anger still boils in northern Ethiopia after protest crackdown

Members of the Oromo, Ogaden and Amhara community in South Africa demonstrate in Johannesburg on August 18, 2016 against the ongoing crackdown in the restive Oromo and Amhara regions of EthiopiaThe demonstrations were crushed but anger remains in Bahir Dar, capital of Ethiopia’s northern Amhara region, where a fortnight ago security forces killed at least 30 protesters, according to a human rights group. “I would say at least 50 people!” said Getachew, a protester who saw bodies arrive at the city hospital on August 7. Dressed in black, Getachew is mourning his younger brother Abebe, 28, who he says was shot twice –- once in the back of the head and once in his side -– as Ethiopian security broke up the protests with gunfire and teargas.
