Regime security forces shot and injured five in protests in Jeldu district of the Oromo region, west of the capital Addis Ababa.

The protest which began on Monday continues on Tuesday as people took to the street denouncing the tyrannical regime in Ethiopia.

A number of people were arrested by the regime’s security on Tuesday, according to sources.

The protest in the Oromo region against years of economic and political marginalization of the Oromo people by the autocratic regime entered its eighth month. At least 400 people were shot and killed by security forces and up to 50,000 people have been arrested, according to estimates by rights groups and opposition political parties.
