Event

Government officials confirmed on Wednesday, September 25, that at least 1000 people have been killed across Ethiopia in the last 12 months as a result of inter-ethnic conflicts. An additional 1.2 million people have been displaced due to the uptick in violence, which has largely occurred in the regions of Oromia, Amhara, and Tigray.

Context

Self-administration and statehood demands by Ethiopia's disparate ethnic groups have caused great tension since Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed assumed office in April 2018.

Advice

Individuals in Ethiopia are advised to monitor developments to the situation, remain vigilant for militant activity, avoid any large gatherings and demonstrations due to the risk of violence, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities or their home governments.
