Ethiopia Bans Child Adoption by Foreigners

Foreigners will no longer be able to adopt children in Ethiopia as its parliament has passed a bill banning the process, BBC reports.

Ethiopia, a country popular among foreigners looking to adopt children, has said orphans should be cared for locally.

The adoption by people from foreign countries has often been a cause for debate, with Denmark banning adoption from the country for fears of child trafficking.

Ethiopian lawmakers have ruled that vulnerable children should be catered for in the country to protect them from abuse abroad.
