Ethiopia has blocked a plethora of social media websites following the posting of university entrance exams online.

The blocked sites include Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Viber.

The sites will be unavailable for the duration of university entrance examinations, according to a spokesman from the Ministry of Education.

‘It’s a temporary measure until Wednesday. Social media have proven to be a distraction for students,” said spokesman Getachew Reda.
