The conflict in Tigray has spawned “alleged gross violations of human rights” by all sides, UN human rights chief Michelle Bachelet said yesterday.
- Violations in Ethiopia’s northernmost state include: attacks on civilians, extrajudicial killings, torture, gang rapes, and mass detentions.
- People of Tigrayan ethnicity have been detained in Addis Ababa because of their ethnicity, and media outlets shut down in Tigray.
- Tigrayan forces have been blamed for attacks on civilians, leading to the displacement of more than 275,000 people.
- Nearly 2.5 million people are in need of health assistance from WHO and partners.
