Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has warned of further instability and vowed to bring to justice those responsible for violence that left at least 67 people dead this week.
“The crisis we have faced will become even more fearsome and difficult if Ethiopians don’t unite and stand as one,” Abiy said in a statement issued by his office on Saturday, his first remarks since the violence broke out.
“We will unswervingly work to ensure the prevalence of the rule of law and to bring perpetrators to justice.”
