Ethnic violence has been on the rise since Abiy came to power, while local government and security sharply deteriorated, according to HRW. More than two million people are currently internally displaced across the country due to conflict, including 1.4 million in the first half of 2018, more than anywhere else globally, the rights group said in April.
Elsewhere, Ethiopian troops have been accused of using lethal force in December last year against unarmed protesters in neighbouring Somalia during a regional election campaign. At least 11 people, including a legislator, died during the clashes.
