A national state of emergency has been declared in Ethiopia just one day after the unexpected resignation of Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn.

Media said the measure is effective as of Friday, but it was not immediately clear how long it would last.

In August 2017, Ethiopia lifted a 10-month state of emergency imposed after hundreds of people were killed in anti-government protests demanding wider political freedoms.

No details were given of how long the latest state of emergency will last or what the restrictions are.
