An Ethiopian judge has ordered a group of 131 detained opposition leaders, journalists and others to remain in custody after most boycotted a bail hearing.
Most lawyers for the group boycotted Wednesday's Ethiopian High Court hearing, saying prison authorities have not allowed them to meet with their clients to discuss the charges.
The judge says he will rule on the bail requests next week.
Ethiopia's government formally charged the group last week with crimes ranging from treason to genocide. Some of the charges are punishable by death.
The accusations are related to anti-government riots in June and November in which more than 80 people were killed. Opposition groups claim the government rigged national elections in May.
The accused include five journalists with the Voice of America's Horn of Africa Service in Washington. They were charged in absentia with plotting to overthrow the Ethiopian government.
