Conflict in Ethiopia’s Amhara Region Killed at Least 200 People This Month

HeadlineApr 28, 2021

In Ethiopia, a senior government official says up to 200 people were killed this month in clashes between Oromo and Amhara communities — Ethiopia’s two largest ethnic groups. The fighting in the northern Amhara region has reportedly displaced over a quarter-million people, including one small town that was completely burned in March. It’s one of several flashpoints in Ethiopia. In the Tigray region, thousands of people have been killed since conflict broke out last November, with widespread reports of war crimes, including sexual violence against women and girls. The fighting has led to food shortages, and aid groups warn millions are at risk of famine.
