Mass grave found in border region
POLICE in Ethiopia said they have found a mass grave with 200 bodies near the border between the Somali and Oromia regions of the country and were trying to identify the bodies, the BBC reported.
The grave was found during an investigation into alleged atrocities committed by the former president of Ethiopia’s Somali region, Abdi Mohamed, who is awaiting trial over allegations he fuelled ethnic clashes.
A notorious regional security force known as the Liyu police is accused of carrying out killings in the area and it reported directly to the regional president. |
