Addis Ababa - Ethiopian demonstrators
hurled stones and scuffled with police during a rally by thousands in the
capital on Wednesday after a video showed dozens of compatriots being shot and
beheaded by Islamic State militants in Libya, witnesses said.
The rally was to show solidarity with
families of those killed.
Scuffles erupted moments after Prime
Minister Hailemariam Desalegn spoke. Witnesses saw several people being
detained by police.
Ethiopia has confirmed that those killed in
the video, posted at the weekend, were its citizens. Family members have so far
named two of them.
