"A fire at a prison housing dissidents near the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa killed 23 people over the weekend, the government said Monday. Saturday’s blaze at the high-security Kilinto prison on the outskirts of the city led to a stampede. Twenty-one victims died from injuries sustained during the stampede and suffocation, while two others were killed attempting to escape the facility, the state-owned Fana Broadcasting Corporation reported."
