The chairperson of the African Union Commission, Moussa Faki Mahamat, has condemned recent killings in Ethiopia following inter-communal violence. BBC Africa reports that ethnic violence has been on the rise in the country, with an attack on Sunday in Oromia state resulting in the death of 32 people. The Ethiopian Human Rights Commission said members of the Amhara ethnic group, the country’s second-largest ethnic group, were targeted in the attack. Faki Mahamat, in a statement, urged “refrain from inflammatory rhetoric” and called for dialogue on key issues.
