Ethiopia: governemnt accused TPLF of killing 30 civilians

Government in Ethiopia has blamed the rebel group, Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), for killing at least 30 civilians during recent attacks.

In its latest statement, the government says the TPLF targeted areas in Amhara and Afar regional states, which both border Tigray, in “unwarranted attacks against innocent civilians”.
