The African Union has called for restraint in Ethiopia where anti-government protests have continued for several months.

In a rare statement on the situation, the AU called for dialogue between all parties involved.

It said deaths had been reported and business disrupted.

A Dutch-owned flower company in Ethiopia said protesters burned down its entire farm earlier this week, causing more than $11m (£8m) worth of damage.

Human rights groups say at least 500 people have been killed and thousands arrested since the protests began.
