The United Nations human rights chief expressed concern Tuesday over the deaths of at least seven people chanting anti-government slogans during a religious festival in Ethiopia last week.The unrest in the city of Woldiya in the northern Amhara region was the latest bloodshed to occur since widespread anti-government protests began in Ethiopia in 2015 that have killed hundreds and posed one of the biggest challenges to the ruling party's 27 years in power.In October 2016, the government imposed a state of emergency that lasted 10 months as a way to stop the unrest, but protests and deaths have occurred sporadically in the Oromo and Amhara federal states since it ended.
