An Ethiopian army drone strike has killed dozens in the Amhara region, according to witnesses and hospital sources.

The attack reportedly occurred on Monday near a small town called Sasit in the central part of the country while a truck was dropping off passengers .

The Ethiopian army has been engaged in combat with a local militant group called Fano since August last year in clashes triggered by a controversial move by federal authorities to dissolve regional paramilitary groups.

Residents told BBC that up to 30 civilians, including 16 members of a single family who were returning from a baby’s baptism, lost their lives in the attack.

A medical practitioner confirmed that 18 people sustained serious injuries and three of them died upon arrival at a medical facility.

The government has not responded to reports of Monday’s attack.

The Amhara region has been under a state of emergency since August of last year.
