Leaked letter and individual interviews suggest there may have been more than 78 who lost their lives.
Scores of priests have been massacred in the Tigray area of Ethiopia, according to a letter purportedly sent by Church officials there.
The Telegraph claims to have a copy of the letter, which was sent to the Synod of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and leaked to the British newspaper. The letter says that “priests, deacons, choristers, and monks” have been “massacred” over the last five months.
