Ethiopia (October 2, 2016)


France deplores the tragic event that occurred the day before yesterday in Ethiopia during a traditional Oromo ceremony in the town of Debre Zeit. The death toll must still be confirmed.

We offer our condolences to the victims’ families and express our solidarity with the Ethiopian people during these three days of mourning.

In a climate of tension lasting several months, we owe it to the victims’ memory to get to the bottom of the circumstances that resulted in this tragedy.
