Demonstrations began in Oromia last November. Protests have also sprung up more recently in the Amhara region.

Oromia and Amhara are the homelands of the country’s two biggest ethnic groups.

Ethiopia’s ethnic make-up

Oromo – 34.4 %

Amhara-  27 %

Somali –  6.2 %

Tigray  –  6.1 %

Sidama –    4 %

Gurage  –  2.5 %
