Somali Police Attack Protesters in Galkayo Demanding Return of Missing Children Feared Dead in War on Tigray

Protests sparked in the central Somalian town of Galkayo amid anger over missing children; they were allegedly sent to the city of Asmara in Eritrea for military training, then deployed to Ethiopia and killed in the war and genocide against the northern breakaway province of Tigray. Police responded by opening fire into the crowd, causing numerous injuries but no reported deaths.

Tigray was previously under Ethiopian control before its populace rose up against control from the despotic ethnic Amhara regime, leading to a dual invasion by both Ethiopia and Eritrea that has reportedly killed over 12,000 civilians amid an information blackout, as human rights groups are blocked from entering the area.
