Over 200 Feared Dead in Ethiopia Massacre

The people who were slaughtered, the Amharas, are a Semitic-speaking ethnic group. According to a national census they comprise a little over one fourth of Ethiopia's population, and are mostly Oriental Orthodox Christian.

quote:

KIGALI, Rwanda — An Ethiopian rebel group massacred more than 200 members of the Amhara ethnic group on Sunday, according to officials and news reports, the latest atrocity amid a civil war that threatens to tear apart Africa’s second-most-populous nation.

Witnesses and officials told The Associated Press that at least 230 people were killed when members of the Oromo Liberation Army attacked Tole, a village in Oromia, Ethiopia’s largest region

The Oromo Liberation Army, a rebel group known as the O.L.A. that is designated as a terror organization by the Ethiopian government, denied carrying out the killings and said they were committed by a militia aligned with the regional government supporting Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.

The attack was among the worst ethnic violence to roil the country since November 2020 when the government and its allies began trying to suppress a rebellion that began in the northern region of Tigray.

I can't believe this happened in such a peaceful part of the world.

Just wait until we stop sending massive amounts of food to Africa with the fertilizer and gas shortages here.

Do we put black squares on instagram for this or not? Maybe we need to drop a black power fist afro pick in Ethiopia.

Funny, nowhere in the article does it mention the method of attack (bombs, swords, runaway SUVs). This means it was a mass shooting.
