Dozens of people have been killed in “gruesome attack” in western Ethiopia, the national human rights body said. The area has seen a spate of deadly assaults on civilians along with a worsening conflict in the north.
Gunmen in western Ethiopia have killed at least 34 people in an attack on a bus, the national human rights body said Sunday.
The Ethiopian Human Rights Commission (EHRC) said the number of people killed was likely to rise after what it called a “gruesome” attack on the passenger bus in the Benishangul-Gumuz region on Saturday.
EHRC also said that “there are reports of similar attacks” in three other areas, including on people “who have fled to seek shelter.”
