NAIROBI (Reuters) - Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said on Thursday that the national military had found bodies of its members who were tied and shot in Tigray, a region in the north where his forces are fighting local troops.

He did not say how many bodies were found and there was no immediate comment from the ruling party in Tigray, the TPLF. Communications have been down in Tigray since the start of the conflict.
