"Dozens of civilians have been shot to death in ethnic based violence in the region of Amhara in Ethiopia. The area has repeatedly been affected by the unrest, and the new is termed as retaliation."
"– Search and rescue is still underway to find victims and survivors of Monday's attack, but I can confirm that the number of dead counted in the several dozen, " says Geleta Hailu, director of communications for the neighbouring Benishangul-Gumuz."
"He says that the violence targeted against the community Gumuz. According to Geleta Hailu has over 80 people admitted to hospital in connection with the violence, and that over 90 took shelter in a local school."
"the Perpetrators have not been identified but Geleta says that the attacks appear to be revenge for the fact that 21 people were killed recently in violence between the Gumuz and the ethnic group Amhara in Benishangul-Gumuz."
"ethnicity based battles are relatively common in different parts of Ethiopia."
