Mass Shooting Kills 220+ People in Western Ethiopia

HeadlineDec 28, 2020

In Ethiopia, the death toll from a mass shooting attack in the west of the country last Wednesday has surpassed 220 people, according to humanitarian workers. The Ethiopian military killed dozens of suspects the day after the attack. The region has been plagued by increasing ethnic violence, which has caused tens of thousands to flee amid recent fighting.

This comes as Ethiopia’s military is still locked in a battle with Tigray forces in the north of the country in a conflict which has displaced hundreds of thousands of people.
