More than 9,000 arrests in Ethiopia since June killing of singer


More than 9,000 people have been arrested in Ethiopia during recent unrest that followed the killing of a popular musician. That’s according to the state-run Human Rights Commission which says 178 people have died in the violence since June.
Critics now worry the country might be sliding back towards repression.
