Ethiopia’s security forces have “neutralized” 265 suspected Oromo Liberation Army (OLA) mutineers in Oromia regional state, state media outlet Fana Broadcasting Corporate (FBC) reported on Monday.

The 265 suspected insurgents were killed in military actions carried out in the past two months, FBC said.

Six suspected OLA insurgents and 87 of their accomplices have also been arrested during the military operations, it added.

The OLA is a breakaway faction of an ex-rebel group Oromo Liberation Front (OLF), also an opposition political party declaring to defend the rights of ethnic Oromos who account for around 35 percent of the country’s population.
