Ethiopia bans weapons at religious gathering
« on: September 25, 2017, 12:50:15 AM »

Ethiopia has banned weapons at the upcoming Irrecha religious festival in order to avoid the violence that killed several dozen people last year. The statement from the restive Oromia region comes ahead of the October 1 thanksgiving gathering.

"The security situation in the region has improved immensely compared to last year so armed personnel will not be allowed to be at the center of the festival," Lomi Beo, head of the Oromia Culture and Tourism Office, told the Associated Press on Sunday. "Armed police will be confined to the outskirts of the festival site as per the request of the religious leaders. We don't expect last year's tragedy to happen again."
