Gunmen in Ethiopia have killed at least 62 people in the region of Oromia.

The attack occurred in the Amuru district, roughly 230 miles from the capital of Addis Ababa. According to reports on the ground, the gunmen were affiliated with the group “Fano.”

A witness who watched the massacre unfold said that between 150-200 militants arrived in the town and began killing men, women, and children. She added that militants rapped women as young as 14 years old.
