Ethiopia condemns Islamic State killings

Ethiopia condemns the reported killing of Ethiopian Christians captured in Libya, and vows to continue its fight against Islamist extremists.

“We strongly condemn such atrocities, whether they are Ethiopians are not,” Ethiopian Minister of Communications Redwan Hussein tells AFP.

Ethiopia’s embassy in Egypt is working to verify if those killed were indeed Ethiopians, he adds.

The Islamic State jihadist group on Sunday released a video purportedly showing the executions of some 30 Ethiopian Christians captured in Libya.
