Thousands of Ethiopian opposition activists demonstrate in Addis Ababa on June 2, 2013. The protests were the largest in the country since post-election violence in 2005, in which 200 people were killed and hundreds more arrested. The activists have vowed to press ahead with demonstrations calling for government reforms and the release of political prisoners. The demonstrations were organised by the newly-formed Blue Party opposition group. Government spokesman Bereket Simon said up to 4,000 people joined Sunday's demonstration, while some observers put the number at 10,000.
