Also in the news was the arrest of nine individuals, including two journalists and two opposition members, in Ethiopia for allegedly plotting terrorism attack. The Ethiopia police allege that the arrested individuals were financially backed by the Eritrean Government to organize a group to plan attacks on power and telecommunication infrastructure. The Ethiopian Government has rejected claims that the journalists had been detained to suppress the freedom of expression.
