News Tech: A broadcaster in Ethiopia’s Tigray region reported that an airstrike by the country’s air force on Friday afternoon hit a kindergarten, causing deaths and injuries.
It aired graphic images of children and adults with dismembered bodies filmed in the aftermath of the attack.
Tigray Television quoted eyewitnesses saying the attack at around 1 pm local time hit a kindergarten called Red Kids Paradise in the Tigrayan capital, Mekele.
Tigray officials have not yet issued a count of the number of deaths and injuries.
The report of a strike on a kindergarten comes amid a resumption of fighting between Ethiopian federal forces and Tigray fighters.
Both sides accused each other of restarting the war in the early hours of Wednesday after a lull in fighting since June 2021. The conflict in Tigray, which began in November 2020, has killed thousands in Africa’s second-most populous country with more than 115 million people.
