Ethiopian government signs deal with Oromo rebels to end hostilities

ADDIS ABABA, Aug 7 (Reuters) - Ethiopia’s government has signed an agreement to end hostilities with the Oromo Liberation Front, which it had previously declared a terrorist movement, state television reported on Tuesday.

The agreement appeared to be another step in a drive by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed to reform institutions, open parts of the state-controlled economy and improve security and diplomatic relations. (Reporting by Aaron Maasho Editing by Matthew Mpoke Bigg)
