Ethiopian security forces have killed more than 400 people, including children, in the Oromia region by using excessive force to quell anti-government protests, according to Human Rights Watch (HRW) report on Thursday, 16June 2016.

Tens of thousands of people have been arrested and many remain in detention without charge, HRW said in a report published on Thursday.
