Ethiopian security forces deported His Grace Archbishop Abune Petros, Secretary of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church and Archbishop of the New York dioceses, upon his arrival at Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa on Tuesday.
He was returning from the United States, where he had traveled a few weeks ago for a church service, an action authorized by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church Patriarchate.
Reportedly, he was deported on the same day.
The Ethiopian government has not yet explained why it took this action.
