(HRW) — Ethiopia cracks down following protests over popular singer’s murder; detainees at a facility in Yemen face serious health risks in pandemic; donor conference on Syria fails to make push on education; atrocities by Sahel security forces fueling recruitment by armed Islamists; controversial arrest of former air force pilot in Djibouti; when will sports stop policing femininity?; and the striking parallels between the African and African-American struggles for equality and justice.
Protests erupted in several towns across Ethiopia in response to the June 29 killing of Hachalu Hundessa, a popular Oromo singer whose songs captured the struggles and frustrations of the Oromo people during the 2014-2018 anti-government protest movement. https://t.co/oDjaXMA6Zd pic.twitter.com/EXfQI12PHQ
