More Than 100,000 Ethiopians March Against ISIL

“More than 100,000 Ethiopians on Wednesday protested the killing of Ethiopian Christians in Libya and their own government’s failure to raise living standards of the poor, with poverty fueling the flow of migrants through unsecured areas in North Africa. The government-supported march at Addis Ababa’s Meskel Square turned violent as stone-throwing protesters clashed with the police, who arrested at least 100 people. The protesters said ‘We want revenge for our sons’ blood,’ referring to Ethiopians seen being beheaded or shot in a video released on Sunday by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). The Ethiopian victims are widely believed to have been captured in Libya while trying to reach Europe.”
