  • Since the violent clashes broke out late last month, Ethiopian authorities have so far arrested more than 570 people in at least four cities.
  • Since the Gondar incident, religious-related tensions have been high in the country.

United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, on Saturday denounced a recent deadly Christian-Muslim violence in Ethiopia and called for an immediate probe into the incidents.

“I am deeply distressed by the recent violent clashes between Muslims and Orthodox Christians in Ethiopia in which at least 30 people were reportedly killed and more than 100 others injured,” Bachelet said in a statement.
