Ethiopian satellite television: federal police arrested media mogul amid protests

(Reuters) – Federal police arrested a powerful Ethiopian media tycoon on Tuesday after his bodygaurds refused orders to disarm, the tycoon’s television station reported, as protests spread in the Oromiya region over the killing of a popular singer.

The Oromia Media Network is owned by Jawar Mohammed, a prominent activist from Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s Oromo ethnic group. Jawar, an erstwhile ally of Abiy, became a vocal critic after he accused the prime minister of not protecting the interests of the Oromo.
