CNN has investigated a gruesome video appearing to show Ethiopian soldiers carrying out extrajudicial executions of unarmed men in Tigray, Ethiopia. This is what we found: http://cnn.it/39DgIQp
🧵A massacre in Ethiopia - this near Mahibere Dego, 15km from Axum. On video, Ethiopian soldiers executed unarmed, captive men and disposed of their bodies. Likely war crimes. @amnesty + @CNN established events around these videos, published by @CNN here
Working with @samdubberley @amnesty, in a frame-by-frame investigation of the video footage + interviews with family members and locals, CNN established Ethiopian soldiers executed unarmed men and disposed of their bodies near Mahibere Dego. https://www.cnn.com/2021/04/01/africa/tigray-mahibere-dego-massacre-video-cmd-intl/index.html
