Ethiopia claims TPLF fighters, not civilians, died in Tigray mass killing
Al Jazeera, 12 May 2021
Ethiopia says the majority of the people killed during a mass killing in the war-torn Tigray region last year were fighters - and not civilians - as reported by rights groups.
Officials have presented new findings relating to a mass killing in the city of Axum in late November.
The officials say 93 people were killed by forces from neighbouring Eritrea and they were mostly from the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF).
