Oromo refugees gathered for a third day outside the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) office near Cairo, protesting alleged harassment from Egyptians and calling for greater protection. They say the mistreatment stems from Egyptians who oppose the Ethiopian government’s controversial Grand Renaissance Dam.

The protesters, mainly from the Oromo nation, left Ethiopia due to political and ethnic oppression. They emphasized their detachment from and displeasure with the Ethiopian government.
