According to official media, clashes broke out in the vicinity of the “Anwar” mosque in the north of the Ethiopian capital, after Muslims took to the street after Friday prayers. Months ago, Ethiopia entered into a crisis due to a major conflict within the church after some bishops attempted to defect. The peace agreement, signed last November, ended a violent two-year war, in which thousands were killed, according to international organizations. The Tigray Liberation Front handed over its heavy weapons to the Ethiopian federal forces last January, as part of the peace process led by the African Union. The matter is complicated despite the government’s promotion of its success in restoring stability in the country after the end of the Tigray war.
