Ethiopia's Ruling Party Accused of Killing Opposition Members

An opposition coalition said Tuesday that five of its members were killed and 22 wounded in recent attacks by members of Ethiopia's ruling party.

The Coalition for Unity and Democracy said the attacks in the past month were meant to intimidate opposition leaders in the run-up to national elections set for May 15.

At least five members of the All Amhara Unity party -- a member of the Coalition for Unity and Democracy -- were killed in the past two weeks in the northeastern region of Eastern Gojam, the coalition said.

Just like Iraqis, shouldn't Ethiopians in the diaspora be given the right to vote in the upcoming elections?
