ethio hospital 5

A nurse cries at Black Lion hospital in Addis Ababa,

Ethiopia, as she looks into a room containing eight

dead bodies - all killed during increasingly violent

demonstrations on the streets of Addis Ababa. Up to

100 people in their twenties were also being treated

for serious gun shot wounds and other injuries at the

hospital in the third day of clashes between

protesters and police on the streets of Addis Ababa.

Addis Ababa 08 June 2005. The clashes erupted out of

student protests over alleged irregularities in

Ethiopia's May 15 national elections.
