'It's eating me up inside': killing of Ethiopian musician sparks deadly protests

Troops were deployed in Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa, ahead of the funeral of the popular musician Haacaaluu Hundeessaa, who was shot dead in a targeted killing earlier this week.

His death sparked protests that have spread from Addis Ababa to the surrounding Oromiya region and claimed more than 80 lives.

The singer's killing tapped into grievances fuelled by decades of government repression and what the Oromo, Ethiopia's biggest ethnic group, describe as their historic exclusion from political power.
