Two bombs has exploded in the Ethiopian city of Amhara, near the northern province of Tigray, where federal troops are battling local forces, and the human rights commission has warned of human rights abuses in the conflict.
On November 4, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed released the National Defense Forces against well-trained local troops in Tigray, killing hundreds of people in clashes, accusing them of attacking a federal military base in the area.
The bombings in the Amhara took place late Friday evening in Bahir Dar and Gondar.
Investigations have begun to determine whether the blasts were linked to fighting in Tigray, the Amhara liaison office said, without giving details of the casualties.
The forces of the Amhara regional state, together with their federal counterparts, fought against the forces of the ruling Tigray party, the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).
The United Nations, the African Union, and other countries are concerned that fighting could spread to other parts of Africa, the second most populous country in the world, destabilizing the Horn of Africa region.
More than 14,500 people have fled to neighboring Sudan, and the speed of new arrivals is “suppressing the current capacity to provide assistance,” the UN refugee agency said.
The government-appointed but independent Ethiopian Human Rights Commission says it is sending a team of investigators to the town of Mai Kadra in Tigray, where Amnesty International is reporting evidence of mass killings.
The amnesty massacre will be a war crime if confirmed to have been committed by one of the militant forces, UN human rights chief Michelle Bachelet revealed on Friday.
The Ethiopian commission will investigate any human rights violations during the conflict, the statement said, adding that “there is a reasonable risk of ethnic profile in connection with the military confrontation.”
