Amnesty accuses Eritrea and Ethiopia of committing atrocities together

Africa Correspondent

It wasn’t so long ago that the Prime Minister of Ethiopia was receiving the Nobel Peace Prize for ending a conflict with Eritrea.

Today Amnesty International released a report accusing both the Eritrean and Ethiopian governments of working alongside each other to commit atrocities.

Ethiopia and Eritrea brought their two-decade long conflict with each other to an end in 2019.

Now it seems they have a common enemy in Tigray, an Ethiopian province along the border with Eritrea.

Amnesty says Eritrean forces massacred hundreds of civilians in the sacred city of Axum last November.

Wereport from the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, and a warning: his report has distressing images from the start.
