Rebel forces in northern Ethiopia have been accused of killing more than a hundred civilians during fierce battles.
Local government officials said the massacre in a village 6 miles (10km) from the town of Dabat took place just over a week ago and was perpetrated by fighters loyal to the Tigray People’s Liberation Front.
A TPLF spokesperson rejected what he called a “fabricated allegation” and called for an independent investigation.
Since war broke out between the government of Tigray province and federal forces in November, there have been multiple accusations of atrocities, with many well-documented mass killings. The vast majority have been attributed to federal Ethiopian forces or their Eritrean allies.
