UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet on Wednesday called the situation in Tigray “worrying and volatile” amid reports of continued fighting between federal and Tigrayan forces  and the ethnic profiling of Tigrayans.

“There is an urgent need for independent monitoring of the human rights situation in the Tigray region, all necessary measures to protect civilians, and accountability for violations,” she said.

Ethiopia’s government, meanwhile, has insisted it “doesn’t need a babysitter.”
