Muslims protest at Arat kilo, Addis Ababa

The federal police storm a place where muslims pray at Arat Kilo to demolish the place at 9:30 this morning and met a strong resistance. Eye witnesses said that more than hundred young muslims threw rocks on the federal police which responded by sealing roads and driving them out of the place.
Some non-muslims also joined the protest. Although the place wasn't a proper mosque, it was frequented by young muslims who attend prayers. The provisional city government declared that the place belonged to another owner.
