Task Force Takes Charge in Ethiopia's Benishangul-Gumuz

The Ethiopian government says it has arrested suspects who they say are responsible for recent attacks on civilians. Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed had earlier appointed a national task force to take over security enforcement operations in Metekel Zone of Benishangul-Gumuz State, this after reports that more than 100 people were killed in the area last week.
