Ethiopia: Fire Breaks Out At Maximum Security Prison

fire-on-Kilinto-presionThe Qilinto maximum security prison, located in southern Addis Abeba, caught fire this morning. Intensive gunfire ensued following the fire accident, creating a tense situation among local residents in the area.

Addis Abeba’s fire brigade chief declined to make a comment on the accident as fire fighters, emergency service providers and first responders continue to battle the blaze, according to eye witnesses.

Under the Federal Prison Administration, Qilinto hosts the country’s high profile political prisoners. Inmates are reportedly being moved away from harm’s way, amidst continued gunfire by prison guards and local police, supposedly to prevent any prison breaks. There is heavy presence of security forces from the federal police around the scene, an eye witness told Fortune.

We will update this story as our reporter on the ground brings more details.

  1. I wonder when a prison like quilinto and debretabor burned down to kill antigovernment politicians.The tplf used to shift the blame of killing on the incidents triggered and composed by itself.We are bored to watch the same malitious films stories.
    The fire in kilinto began at 9 oclock and took more than 7 hours to control,the storey goes.
    The tplf is using sudanis’ soldiers to kill our people in metema and
    ambagoorgis.
    They throw grenade in a mosque,harer,and kill 5 people and blame alshaba
    killing in open air,killing by creating incidents,killing by using foreing soldiers,killing by using the name of terrorist organ.
    I have a Questions to ask:1.ARE THE DECISION MAKERS ETHIOPIANS.2.WHAT IS THE RESPONSE OF ETHIOPIANS WHO SUPPORT TPLF.3.BY CREATING SUCH COVER UP STORIES THEY THINK THEY CAN CHEAT THE PEOPLE.THIS IS AN INSULT TO THE INTELEGENCE OF ETHIOPIAN PEOPLE.SO THE PEOPLE,SOLDIERS,SUPPORTERS OF TPLF SHOULD TURN THEIR BACK AGAINST THE INTERNAL COLONIZERSAND AND JOIN THE PEOPLE TO TOPPLE THE AUTHORS OF SUCH EVIL ;WHO DO NOT COUNT MORE THAN TEN IN NUMBER.
