The death toll of recent clashes in the Oromia Region of Ethiopia rises to 86.
Ethiopian police report on Friday that the death toll from violent protests in Oromia Region was 67, including five officers. The protests started on Wednesday when protestors accused Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed of acting dictatorial, but they quickly degenerated into ethnic clashes.
According to the government of Ethiopia, the death toll from a raid carried out by attackers from South Sudan has risen to 208 from a figure of 140 a day earlier, with 108 children being kidnapped in the process. Ethiopian forces killed 60 of the attackers and says it would cross the border into South Sudan to pursue the assailants if necessary.
