I don’t think many of us in the US have really followed this story, mainly because it isn’t getting reported much here.
This, however, is attention-getting. Ethiopian soldiers are recording each other executing people. You know, because it’s fun. And who doesn’t like a good time?
In the extended video seen by CNN, Fafi swaps the phone with another soldier, takes the gun and shoots. The phone is then swapped back as others clamor to be filmed executing the captives, brazenly documenting their crimes.
United Nations says 23 global hot spots will experience ‘catastrophic’ food shortages in next three months
Hunger is expected to rise in 23 global hot spots in the next three months with the highest alerts for “catastrophic” situations in Ethiopia’s embattled Tigray region, southern Madagascar, Yemen, South Sudan and northern Nigeria, two UN agencies warned Friday.
The Food and Agriculture Organization and World Food Program said in a new report on “Hunger Hotspots” between August and November that “acute food insecurity is likely to further deteriorate.”
They put Ethiopia at the top of the list, saying the number of people facing starvation and death is expected to rise to 401,000 – the highest number since the 2011 famine in Somalia – if humanitarian aid isn’t provided quickly.
