A town in the northern Tigrai region of Ethiopia
. In 1988 its market was the target of an aerial bombing raid by the air force during the Derg regime. The atrocity left some 2500 civilians dead.
There is said to be a monument at the site that commemorates the tragedy of that dark day … but I have to find out more when I prepare for a trip to Ethiopia, possibly for the end of 2019 …. watch this space.
