The Ethiopian embassy in London says together with members of the Ethiopian community it will restore the bust of Haile Selassie, Ethiopia’s last emperor, which was toppled by Oromo protesters last week in London.
The demonstrators were angered by the murder of prominent singer Hachalu Hundessa, who was gunned down last week in the capital, Addis Ababa.
In the aftermath of his death his supporters marched in Addis Ababa and other parts of Ethiopia to show their discontent, in some areas clashing with police.
The protests spread to the UK, where a group of youths targeted the bust in a park in south London.
The Metropolitan Police are investigating the incident.
