The UN rights chief on Wednesday slammed the extreme brutality characterising the conflict in Ethiopia’s Tigray region, following a joint UN-Ethiopian report warning of possible “crimes against humanity” by all sides.

“The Tigray conflict has been marked by extreme brutality,” Michelle Bachelet, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said in a statement, adding “the gravity and seriousness of the violations and abuses we have documented underscore the need to hold perpetrators accountable on all sides.”

An Oromo group allied with Tigrayan fighters said on Wednesday, as they advance southward, Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa could be overrun by rebels within “months if not weeks.”

The TPLF, which has been battling Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s government for a year, has claimed significant territorial gains in recent days, along with its ally the Oromo Liberation Army (OLA).

The Ethiopian government had previously assigned an interim administration in Tigray after the ouster of the TPLF, which used to rule the region.

The Ethiopian government has declared a national state of emergency amid fears that Tigray insurgents are preparing to march on the capital.
