Police arrest opposition members in western Ethiopia

Feb 26, 2006 (ADDIS ABABA) — Ethiopian authorities arrested opposition members accused of subversive activities in western Ethiopia. The Ethiopian TV said the “anti-peace forces” collaborated with the Ormo rebels and the Eritrean government.
The term "anti-peace forces" is often used by the government to refer to members of the main opposition political party, the Coalition for United and Democracy (CUDP), which claims elections last year were rigged.
Nearly all the CUDP leadership are among a group of 131 opposition supporters, journalists and others facing treason and other charges after being accused of fomenting a coup d’etat through protests against the May 15 polls.
