4 killed in unrest in Eastern Ethiopia - Xinhua

ADDIS ABABA, Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- Unrest in Ethiopia's eastern Harari regional state left four people dead, a regional official said on Tuesday. "In addition, machineries amounting to 150 million Ethiopian birr (5.5 million US dollars) were destroyed in the unrest," he said. Ethiopia is still reeling from unrest that affected large parts of the country in 2016. The unrest in 2016 led to the deaths of hundreds and was dubbed by analysts as the gravest challenge the ruling coalition Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front faced in 25 years. However, sporadic deadly protests especially in Amhara and Oromia regional states in recent months have renewed fears about Ethiopia's stability.
