Abiy Ahmed News Today 2020
Federal and Regional leadership have convened this morning to evaluate government response to natural disasters that have affected various regions in the country. Despite intense flooding, there are no reported deaths and our National Defense Forces have been on the ground undertaking necessary measures. In our ensuing discussions we have set a direction on various issues including on relief efforts being undertaken by the relevant authorities.
Our discussions have also evaluated the sporadic security incidents that have been occurring, particularly in the border areas, which are being perpetrated by groups aimed at overturning the reforms journey. In this regard a special operation will be activated to hold to account all perpetrators with the oversight of the Attorney General. In related matters, I am pleased to learn that the 29 hostages taken in Benishangul-Gumuz region have been released. My appreciation to all those involved in their safe release.
