Members of the Oromo, Ogaden and Amhara community in South Africa demonstrate against the ongoing crackdown in the restive Oromo and Amhara region of Ethiopia on August 18, 2016 in Johannesburg.
A massive deployment of police in Ethiopia's restive Oromo and Amhara regions prevented fresh anti-government protests over the weekend of August 13 and 14, 2016, an opposition leader said August 15, 2016. Small-scale protests were however reported over the weekend in at least three locations in Amhara region in the north and one in the central Oromo region. Ethiopian opposition parties have been decimated by the arrests of leaders and members in recent years, often under a broadly-applied anti-terrorism law. / AFP / GULSHAN KHAN (Photo credit should read GULSHAN KHAN/AFP/Getty Images)
