At least 10 people, including police officers and civilians, have been reportedly killed in northern Ethiopia following days of protests, according activists and a monitor.
Demonstrations on yesterday and similar protests in recent days in the northern city of Gondar were against what protesters see as the erosion of their ethnic identities in the area. 

The violence is believed to have started after the attempted arrests by Ethiopian government troops of some leaders of the Amhara ethnic group.
