Fionn Shiner of Aid to the Church in Need told Crux, “It has been reported widely that rape is being used as a weapon of war in Tigray and unfortunately, it seems that nuns have been targeted too.”
In addition, “international condemnation is growing over an airstrike that killed dozens of people in Ethiopia’s war-torn northern Tigray region earlier this week,” CNN reported.
