“Scores and probably hundreds” of civilians have been massacred in the growing conflict in Tigray in northern Ethiopia, Amnesty International says.

Witnesses blamed forces loyal to the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) for Monday’s killings but Tigrayan officials have denied that pro-TPLF troops were involved.

Fighting between government forces and the TPLF broke out last week.

Getting information is hard, with phone lines and the internet down.
