At least seven people were killed yesterday in Gambella town, south of Ethiopia, during an attempted prison break.

Eye witnesses told Addis Standard that a fierce clash between the Nuer and Anywaa ethnic groups also left scores wounded when hundreds of Nuers attacked a prison called Gambella regional state correctional facility and located in an area locally known as “4 Kilo” in Gambella town. (Pictured above).
