Amnesty International released report on Ethiopia’s conflict in its Tigray region

Today, Amnesty International released its long-awaited report on the massacres that took place in Axum during Ethiopia’s conflict in its Tigray region. The report presents a detailed account of two days of terror that occurred November 28-29, 2020, when Eritrean soldiers massacred hundreds of civilians at the St. Mary of Zion Church and throughout the rest of the city. ECDC is heartbroken by what has taken place in Axum, where it has long conducted cultural and educational projects. ECDC calls on the Biden Administration to demand a full and independent international investigation of the killings in Axum and all possible war crimes committed during the Tigray conflict.
