Gunmen kill civilians in #Amaro woreda of Southern Nations, Nationalities and People’s Region (#SNNPR).
The attack was allegedly committed by an unspecified armed group together with the Oromo Liberation Army (often referred by the government as OLF/Shene) according to the Amaro woreda communications office, at a meeting among neighboring kebeles in Gujii zone and Amaro woreda.
The gunmen opened fire on the attendants of the meeting, harming officials, farmers, police and civilians. The woreda communication bureau put the number of deaths at six, saying that it could be more because there are people who have fled to the woods.
Eyewitnesses told the Ethiopia Insider that Dagnachew Echela, the woreda’s head of Prosperity Party was among the dead. Six people including the woreda administrator, Wegene Dejene are receiving treatment after sustaining critical injuries.
The Amaro woreda administration said that more than a hundred people have been killed in repeated attacks and many kebeles have been destroyed by the ‘OLF and its allies’. The woreda administration expressed its condolences for the lives lost and called on the government to hear the voices of the people of Kore.
