Sky News: Hundreds Executed in Tigray, Ethiopia | በመቶዎች የሚቆጠሩ በትግራይ ተረሸኑ

Exclusive: Allegations and stories of atrocities and human rights abuses have surfaced in Tigray despite a government-imposed communications blackout.

After four months of warfare between Ethiopia’s national defence force and fighters from the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), more than 500,000 Tigrayans have lost their homes and 60,000 have sought refugee status in neighbouring Sudan.

But other stories are emerging of executions and other atrocities.

Sky’s Africa correspondent John Sparks and his team are the first broadcast journalists to reach the region south of Tigray.

Ethiopia’s government has been asked for a response to this story.
