Gondar, Ethiopia Update

Wednesday, July 13, 2016 - Today the U.S. Embassy in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia issued a temporary restriction on travel by its mission personnel to the city of Gondar in Amhara state due to recent reports of violent demonstrations. Ohio State has one known graduate researcher in Gondar and communication has been established with the student. The university is collaborating with its security provider so the student may be temporarily relocated to Addis Ababa. In addition, the international risk manager has recommended the curtailment of any current student travel to Gondar and advises the temporary suspension of any additional university travel to Gondar until more information on the security situation is obtained.
