Violence in the Ogaden Rages on
Hidden and isolated from the world the armed conflict raging in the Ogaden region of Ethiopia goes unnoticed. The killing and raping of innocent civilians at the hands of the military and their paramilitary partners in crime the Liyu police, the false arrests, torture and imprisonment remain largely hidden and unreported. The international media, human rights groups and most aid organizations (including the International Red Cross) have been banned from the region by the ruling Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) since 2007.
