Ethiopia's attorney general has charged 68 people with involvement in deadly riots in and around Addis Ababa in September that left at least 49 dead, local media reported on Wednesday. The rebel group returned to Addis Ababa following political reforms introduced by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed. The 68 suspects come from both sides of the divide during the clashes, which also caused millions of dollars in damage. The government put the death toll at 49, although hospital sources told AFP some 68 had been killed. * Sign up to News24's top Africa news in your inbox: SUBSCRIBE TO THE HELLO AFRICA NEWSLETTERFOLLOW News24 Africa on Twitter and Facebook.
