Concerns Over Reports of Abuses in Ethiopia's Tigray

The United State has expressed concern about unconfirmed reports alleging mass detentions, killings, and forced expulsions of ethnic Tigrayans in western Tigray by Amhara security forces. The State Department called on all armed actors in Ethiopia to renounce and end violence against civilians.  They also reiterated a call for a cessation of hostilities, an immediate end to human rights abuses and violations, negotiations without preconditions, unhindered humanitarian access, and the start to an inclusive national dialogue.
