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.

    Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow reports.
