REPORT 55 April 2021: Ethnic cleansing in Amhara Region; collapse of democracy and rule of law; attacks in Guliso; massacre of migrants in Yemen

Wollo Oromo, isolated within Amhara Region, were attacked by Amhara militia in Oromia
Special Zone and adjacent zones from 19-22 March (pp.9-12) and 25-28 March (see Late
News, pp.25-6) . At least 13 villages were razed to the ground. The militia went on a rampage of killing, raping and burning homes and crops (illustrated below, around Kemise).
In five villages in Jille Dhuguma district and ten villages in the adjacent district of Artuma Fursi alone, at least 79 named farmers and their wives were killed, not counting those killed in Ataye town. Eye-witnesses reported hundreds dead, ‘bodies everywhere’ and over 10,000 displaced.
In a press release, the OLF wrote of killings by Amhara militias elsewhere – in Tigray and in Benishangul-Gumuz Regions – and that Amhara Liyu Police were deployed throughout Wallega and in West and North Showa. Earlier in the year, on 15 February, Amhara militia attacked villagers in an adjacent area of E Wallega, Gida Ayana, killing dozens and wounding more (p.17).
