The Ethiopian government has charged two people with terrorism over a deadly stampede last year that killed dozens of people and led the government to declare a state of emergency in the country.
Tufa Melka and Kedir Bedasso are the first people charged in the October stampede at a religious festival in the restive Oromia region amid months of anti-government protests.
According to media reports, Melka is accused of snatching a microphone from community leaders and causing trouble during the festival, while Bedasso is accused of orchestrating the violence by phone.
The Ethiopian government claimed the stampede killed 55 people in the stampede south of the capital, Addis Ababa, but opposition groups and activists say the number was much higher.
The state of emergency was declared three days later as protests demanding wider political freedoms engulfed the capital.
