More than 40,000 runners participated in Africa’s largest road race, The Great Ethiopian Run, at the capital Addis Ababa this week.

Overall the event went as planned except the death of two runners of natural causes and the Federal police was hassling runners with Ethiopia’s flag as they confiscate it on alleged grounds that it is “not legal.” And this is the flag that Ethiopian patriots carried while fighting fascist Italy. Yetneberk Tadele, a journalist, wondered as to what they would do to the flags they confiscated since government considers it as illegal.
