Nairobi - Human Rights Watch says in a new report Ethiopia is denying opposition supporters food and other aid in a widespread effort to suppress political dissent.

The New York-based group said on Tuesday much of the aid being denied to ordinary citizens is provided by foreign governments such as the US and Britain. The report says donors have privately told Human Rights Watch they are aware of the allegations but they do not know the extent of the alleged abuse.

The report is based on interviews conducted over six months in 2009 with more than 200 people in 53 villages across three regions of Ethiopia.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi's party won another five-year mandate in May. EU observers said the poll was marred by an uneven playing field favoring Meles' party.
