Gunmen have massacred no less than 34 people in an attack on a bus on Saturday night.
NewsOnline Nigeria learned that the attack occurred in the Benishangul-Gumuz region of western Ethiopia, the national human rights body said on Sunday.
And it happened amid a security vacuum in the country, as the military campaign to subdue Tigray in the north intensified.
Ethiopia’s Human Rights Commission said the death toll is likely to rise after what it called a “gruesome” attack on the passenger bus.
He said there were reports of “similar” attacks and of people fleeing the violence in other parts of the region.
“The latest attack is a terrible addition to the human cost that we collectively bear,” Daniel Bekele, head of the commission, said.
