Ethiopia confirms jail terms for blogger, opposition figure

An Ethiopian court on Thursday dismissed the appeal of blogger Eskinder Nega and opposition leader Andualem Arage who were jailed last year for terror-related offences. "The sentencing is still correct so there is no reduction," said Supreme Court judge Dagne Melaku, confirming Eskinder's jail term of 18 years and Andualem's life sentence. One of the charges -- serving as a leader of a terrorist organisation -- was dropped, but had no affect on sentencing.
