Addis Ababa - Regional officials in Ethiopia say 11 people were killed in clashes in the restive Oromia region as the country continues to experience anti-government protests that at times lead to ethnic violence.

The Oromia and Amhara regional states spokesmen on Sunday issued statements after a week of unrest in Oromia that reportedly caused major business disruptions and the burning of several vehicles and properties in various locations.

Spokesperson for the Amhara region Nigusu Tilahun said on Sunday that in addition to the 11 killings properties were destroyed and citizens displacemed.
