BBC Amharic Service, Addis Ababa
Shops are shut in the business district of Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa, as crowds protest against the killing of 23 people in violence which hit the outskirts of the city at the weekend.
The protesters are condemning the violence and demanding that the government do more to protect citizens, especially ethnic minorities who say they have been targeted in the violence.
Thousands of people are taking shelter in schools following the violence in the Oromiya region's Burayu district, north-west of Addis Ababa.
The violence followed a mass rally in Addis Ababa on Saturday to welcome the leadership of the exiled Oromo Liberation Front (OLF).
The OLF had waged a rebellion for the self-determination of the Oromo people, Ethiopia's largest ethnic group. Its leadership returned after President Abiy Ahmed lifted a ban on the group.
"Mobs of ethnic Oromo youth then marched here in Ashwa Meda and attacked our homes and looted businesses chanting 'leave our land'," Hassan Ibrahim, a trader in an ethnically diverse part of the district, told Reuters news agency.
Alemayehu Ejigu, the head of Oromiya region's police commission, confirmed that 23 people had been killed.
More than 70 people had been arrested in connection with the violence, he added, Reuters reports.
"They [the attackers] do not represent anyone - they had no reason other than theft. Anyone has the constitutional right to reside in Oromiya or anywhere," he was quoted as saying.
While parts of the commercial centre of Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa, has been described as a ghost town (see earlier entry), in the wake of clashes between supporters of the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) and some residents in the city, the western part of the city is very busy.
Thousands of OLF supporters are walking into Addis Ababa ahead of a rally welcoming back the movement's leaders from exile. They are being escorted by members of the security forces.
The BBC's Habtamu Tibebu has photographed some of them as they make their way into the city:
