Ethiopia promised to take action after a video of a man being burned alive

Ethiopia-(Berberanews)-The #Ethiopian government has announced that persons shown in a video burning a man alive will face legal prosecution.

On social media, a video showing guys dressed in Ethiopian army uniforms insulting the victim and lighting him on fire has gone viral.

The event occurred in the northern province of Benishangul-Gumuz, where ethnic conflict is common, according to authorities.

The video has not been independently authenticated.

It’s unclear whether the occurrence has anything to do with the 16-month-old battle in northern Ethiopia.
