Three months after Konso, an area of over 250,000 people in Southern Ethiopia, was rocked by protests and many protesters were detained, an unknown armed group has today freed at least 59 prisoners, that is according to the Diaspora based Ethiopian Satellite Television (ESAT).

A person who spoke to ESAT said the released were “their members.”

Last month Ethiopian regime forces killed two people in Konso, Southern Ethiopia.
