Local officials in Ethiopia say at least eight people have been killed and 30 wounded in renewed disturbances in the Oromia region.

The anti-government protests are reported to have taken place in a number of towns.

Hundreds were killed during widespread protests in the Oromia and Amhara regions last year.

The government imposed a state of emergency, which was lifted in August.
