The Ethiopian state under the cover of the War on Terror has criminalised its Somali population, causing unrest and resentment in the East African country.
The death of about 40 people in Ethiopia’s Oromia over the weekend is being blamed on the Liyu Police, a regional paramilitary force from the Somali region.
Inmates at Jail Ogaden in Somali region of the country were abused for years with little access to medical care, report says. Ethiopia says it has fired senior prison officials for violating rights.
The so-called war on terror has deformed the Ethiopian state and society. The social fabric as a result has been badly frayed with widespread extrajudicial killings and torture. Can anything be done to improve this?
