Internet restored in Ethiopia 10 days after assassinations

 

Ethiopia has begun restoring internet access Tuesday, 10 days after it was cut following the assassinations of six top government officials.

On June 22, attackers shot and killed the Amhara governor and two other officials. On the same night in Addis Ababa, the country's army chief and his close friend, a retired army general, were assassinated inside his residence by his bodyguard.

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said the killings in Amhara were a coup attempt. The internet was shut following the killings.
