Musician Haacaalu Hundeessa was murdered Monday in alleged assasination.

At least 50 people were killed in Ethiopia's Oromia region in protests following the fatal shooting of a popular singer, a regional spokesman said.

Musician Haacaaluu Hundeessaa was shot dead on Monday night in what police said was a targeted killing.

Protests following the killing, and a sense of political marginalization, broke out the next morning in the capital and other towns and cities in the surrounding Oromia region.

The dead included protesters and members of the security forces, spokesman Getachew Balcha said on Wednesday. Some businesses had also been set on fire.

Police said late on Tuesday that a police official was also killed in the capital Addis Ababa where three explosions had also killed and injured an unspecified number of people.

Prominent Oromo opposition leader Bekele Gerba and media mogul Jawar Mohammed, along with 34 other people, were also arrested when Jawar’s bodyguards refused to disarm during a standoff with police.
