Human rights organization Amnesty International said on Friday that “hundreds” of people were massacred by Eritrean troops in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region last November.

Amnesty’s Jean-Baptiste Gallopin, who conducted numerous interviews with residents and witness from the historical town of Axum, where the alleged massacre took place, told DW: “The perpetrators were Eritreans.”
