ADDIS ABABA, Ethi­o­pia — Ethiopia's new prime minister, Abiy Ahmed, has been on a whirlwind peace offensive since taking office in April. He's just signed a peace agreement with Eritrea, a long-time enemy of Ethiopia. In late June, Ahmed removed three rebel movements from Ethiopia's list of terrorist groups.

The Oromo Liberation Front is one of the rebel movements formerly considered to be a terrorist group. Its leaders returned from exile in Eritrea to Ethiopia on Sept. 15.
