June 09, 2005|From Associated Press

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia — Security forces opened fire on protesters, killing 22 people and wounding 40 in this capital city, and placed some opposition politicians under house arrest.

The violence came on the third day of demonstrations challenging the government's claim of victory in last month's legislative elections.

Opposition parties say there was widespread fraud and intimidation, charges the ruling party denies.
