Bachelet Urges Prompt Investigation Into Killings In Western EthiopiaGENEVA (23 June 2022) – UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet on Thursday urged Ethiopian authorities to hold prompt, impartial and thorough investigations into attacks that led to the killing of hundreds of people in the West Wollega zone, western Ethiopia, last weekend. The armed individuals also reportedly burned down several houses during the four-hour assault. “I am horrified by the senseless killing as well as the forced displacement of the local population in the attack on Tole village,” Bachelet said. “I call on the authorities to take all necessary and lawful measures to ensure those abducted regain their freedom,” the High Commissioner said.
