Amnesty: Eritrean Troops Killed Hundreds of Ethiopians in Axum
TEHRAN (FNA)- Eritrean soldiers fighting across the border in Ethiopia’s Northern Tigray region killed hundreds of people in a massacre last year in a likely crime against humanity, Amnesty International said Friday.
The rights watchdog spoke to survivors of the atrocities and used satellite images to piece together the bloody events of last November in the ancient town of Axum in a new report, Daily Sabah reported.
“The evidence is compelling and points to a chilling conclusion. Ethiopian and Eritrean troops carried out multiple war crimes in their offensive to take control of Axum,” said Deprose Muchena of Amnesty International.
