Currently, more than 60 percent of about 40 Ethiopian universities have reportedly suspended their services after the majority of their students fled back home due to unfolding ethnic-based attacks. The university students are being held hostages, denied access to meals and dormitories, harassed and intimidated by the troublemakers, including those students who have poor academic records, Dr. Samuel said.
