  • Description

    About a thousand university students demonstrated in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, on Monday (10 March) demanding the release of certain prisoners.

    It was the first known civilian demonstration--apart from the Eritiean independence movement--against the military government.

    The students, from the Addis Ababa University, asked the country's military rulers to release what they called "some of the progressive people" being held.

    The students, carrying placards and red flags, also called on the military regime to form a people's government.
