Ethiopia’s Ethnic Tension: Over 200 feared massacred

10

Sunday June 19, 2022 could be christened as a “bloody Sunday” in Ethiopia as reports abound that more 200 people of Amhara ethnic origin killed in an attack in the country’s Oromia region.
Eye witnesses blamed the Oromo Liberation Army [OLA] for the attacks. In a statement, the Oromia regional government also blamed the OLA, saying the rebels attacked after being unable to resist the operations launched by (federal) security forces. Ethiopia is saddled with widespread ethnic conflicts in many regions, most of them over historical grievances and political tensions.
