Wolaita People’s Democratic Front says 21 people killed as uneasy calm returns
Nebiyu Marqosa, a resident of Sodo city, the capital of Wolaita zone, told Addis Standard that the army’s crackdown against protestors was intense in main towns of the zone including #Boditi and #Areka towns as well as in Sodo city. Among them were three people, including a child, who was shot dead in Sodo city in areas called #Maedot, #Maremiya and #Qera (where the child was killed). Four people were also shot dead in Boditi town, and another one in Areka town. Nebiyu said that the fatal shootings happened despite the nonviolent protests which only involved road blocking with rocks, burning of tires and woods on the streets.
