Mass Arrests on Christmas Day
Last night police swarmed the streets of Addis in attempt to broaden the mass arrest efforts already underway.
In addition to the thousands of youths reportedly detained over the weekend, those even remotely connected to the opposition CUD are being systematically rounded up and detained for 'questioning'--thanks to a circulating 'official list' of names and license plate numbers of alleged party supporters.
It is assumed that this action is intended as a preventative measure in light of growing internal opposition to the war following the recent air strikes in Somalia.
People are advised to remain in their homes after dark.
