They dialled the number to see who the contact was. That's Hollywood sort of shiat.The army called for a public meeting in one local area in Oromia and collected all the phones of those who had turned up.
One of the phones then rang and when soldiers asked for the owner to identify himself Mr Ariti stepped forward, an eyewitness is reported to have said.
He was then shot in the back twice, the witness added.

Note to self:  When the authorities round me up and ask for my phone, and then it rings, don't claim it was mine.

Really kinda wish there was a non-lethal, mostly harmless even, way to do that in "real life".

How much would it suck if it had been a call about his car's extended warranty?

Foamy The Squirrel would approve. The site offered a downloadable .mp3 ringtone that went, "HEY! Follow the sound of my voice and kill whoever is holding the phone!"
