Ethiopian protesters set Dangote Cement plant on fire

A cement factory owned by Africa’s richest man, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, has been attacked by protesters in Ethiopia’s Oromia region.

The protests were in response to the deaths of at least 55 people in a stampede at a religious festival of the Oromo people on Sunday.

The protesters burnt trucks and machinery at the Dangote cement factory in Ada Berga.

Protesters also allegedly freed prisoners after setting ablaze a police station in the Bule Hora area, as well as a court and government-owned vehicles.

Activists say the security forces opened fire at the festival, causing the stampede.
