Ethiopians heartened by a wave of reforms under a new prime minister have packed a square in the capital in a show of support with numbers unseen in recent years in the East African nation، AP reported.
In a cowboy hat and T-shirt، Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed is addressing the crowd in Addis Ababa's Meskel Square as supporters wear clothes displaying his image and carry signs saying "One Love، One Ethiopia."

The 42-year-old Abiy took office in April and quickly surprised Africa's second most populous country by announcing the release of tens of thousands of prisoners، the opening of state-owned companies to private investment and the unconditional embrace of a peace deal with rival Eritrea.
The United States is among those expressing support for the changes in a key security ally.
