The Washington Post is reporting that a deal has been struck between some of the 38 opposition leaders in Kality (not all) and the Ethiopian govt. The report also asserts that those who signed the agreement could be free within days. We advise our readers to take this story with a grain of salt. Also see Ethio-Zagol and EMF’s report.
