Ethiopia Expels Three American Groups

Ethiopia on Wednesday ordered three private American groups that promote democracy to cease operations and gave their foreign staff 48 hours to leave, officials with two of the groups said.

Field missions from the groups — the National Democratic Institute, the International Republic Institute and IFES — were in Ethiopia helping prepare the Horn of Africa nation for May 15 general elections.
