WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. State Department issued a travel alert for Ethiopia on Friday over anti-government protests, some of which have involved violence.
"Protests are likely to continue, and could spread to other parts of the country, including the capital, Addis Ababa," the State Department said in a statement. The embassy said disruptions and internet services have hampered its ability to communicate with American citizens.
