An opposition party in Ethiopia says the security forces have arrested five of its senior members following last week’s protests that left more than 160 people dead.
The Oromo Liberation Front says the politicians were detained in the capital, Addis Ababa.
The group’s chairman, Dawud Ibsa, said it was not known where they were taken.
The violence in Ethiopia started a week ago after the murder of the popular Oromo singer, Hachalu Hundessa.
