Ethiopia 'targets' Oromo ethnic group, says Amnesty

Such reoprt used to be common when ONLF was at its climax able to feed AI and other institutions all kind of make believe stories that never pan out when investigated! Now that ONLF is a spent force and nonexistent AI is using the OLF another dying organization. We can only guess why AI came up with such report! AI must be aware two key OLF leaders are about to make peace with themselves and join the peaceful struggle. Regardless the motive of AI, the Ethiopian government must take AI head on and ask the UN Human Right Organization to investigate the allegation(s). If the alleged victims are in Kenya and elsewhere in the region the UN should interview them. If AI is exploiting the civil disturbances that pops up now and then inside Ethiopia then shame on them! Ethiopia is going through a democratic transition and the process has many ups and downs. This should not be news to AI.
