Ethiopia’s government has signed a deal to end hostilities with the Oromo Liberation Front, which the Ethiopian government had previously labeled a terrorist group. The Oromo Liberation Front has been fighting for decades for the self-determination of the Oromia region, home to the Oromo people. This deal follows a historic peace agreement between Ethiopia and neighboring Eritrea brokered last month.
