Ethiopia’s state appointed rights group has accused a Tigrayan youth group of murdering hundreds of civilians during a three-week war in Addis Ababa-Nairobi.

According to Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s government, enemy soldiers were surrendering as it proceeded towards the regional capital, however the Tigrayans have resisted and massacred the army division.

Non-Tigrayans were allegedly stabbed, set on fire, strangled and beaten to death. 

The war has now spread to Eritrea. Tigrayans have fired their rockets to the area. 

Somalia has also been affected where Ethiopia has disarmed several hundred Tigrayans in a peacekeeping force fight.

Many Tigrayan combatants have responded to an agreement to lay down arms before the attack against Mekelle city, which houses half a million people.

The deadline expires on Wednesday.
