Ethiopia:Deadly protests 2 killed

More than 600 have been displaced during the clashes on Tuesday in towns in the east of the country.

Demonstrators accuse a police unit of carrying out killings and human rights abuses against the Oromo people.

The government has blamed the clashes on a border dispute between the Oromo and their neighbours in the Somali region of Ethiopia.

It says it has now sent in the military to carry out a disarmament exercise.

The conflict has been raging for months but escalated this week in violent confrontations.

In August, the government lifted a 10-month state of emergency imposed following more than two years of anti-government protests.
