Two prisons set ablaze in Amhara region

Two prisons in the Woldia and Finote Selam towns of the Amhara Regional State have been set on fire following “commotion” inside the prisons. Other harms have also been caused, according to Nigussu Tilahun’s Facebook account, the regional communications bureau head.

The commotion inside the prisons was caused by prisoners who demanded that the recent pardon proclamation approved by the House of Peoples’ Representatives should also benefit them.
