Ethnic attacks kill 60 in Ethiopia’s Oromiya

Nairobi: On September 6, Gunmen killed more than 60 people and displaced 20,000 during three days of ethnically motivated violence in Ethiopia’s Oromiya. The state-appointed Ethiopian Human Rights Commission (EHRC) said the latest bloodshed attempted to capture the town of Obora, killing three Amharas in the process. Over the following two days, the EHRC said, Amharas from surrounding districts launched reprisal killings against Oromos.
