Last week on Friday, after Fano fighters carried out an attack on government security forces, seven civilians were killed in Debre Keraniyo Medhanialem Church in Motta Keraniyo town of East Gojjam Zone, says a church minister and local residents.


Residents say a day before the incident the six people (deceased victims) and an abinet student were digging a hole for the burial site of a nun who passed away.


Residents said there was no gunfire exchange between government security forces and the individuals that were digging the burial site.


When asked to comment on the matter, Hulet-Eju-Enese Woreda administrator Ato Mamaru Ayenabeba said he did not want to comment.


The Ethiopian Human Rights Commission Bahir Dar Branch Head Ato Alebachew Birhanu said the commission received such information and was in the process of undertaking an investigation.
