AT least 102 civilians have reportedly been massacred in the latest outbreak of ethnic violence in Ethiopia.
Local reports said the Ethiopian army had responded by killing at least 42 militants in the western region of Benishangul-Gumuz.
The attack on civilians came hours after a visit by prime minister Abiy Ahmed – last year’s Nobel peace prize winner – who called for armed rebels to be brought to justice.
The attacks are separate from the ongoing conflict in the breakaway Tigray region in Northern Ethiopia.
