In pics: primitive tribes in southern regional state of Ethiopia

Photo taken on Oct. 24, 2018 shows several hay houses in a Mursi village in Southern Regional State, Ethiopia. Mursi people, with a population of around 10,000 in total, mainly lived in the Southern Regional State of Ethiopia, close to the border with South Sudan. According to a local resident, a Mursi girl’s lower lip is cut when she is young and the wound is then stretched over time to accomodate lip plate as a decoration. (Xinhua/Lyu Shuai)
