Ethiopia: Former jail to become museum

New president closed it several months ago as part of reforms.

    The administration of Ethiopia's southeastern Somali regional state has announced plans to turn a recently closed prison into a museum.

    The Ogaden jail in the regional capital Jijiga was used for more than 10 years to systematically abuse and kill political dissidents, their relatives and other inmates.
