ENDF denies allegations it executed Sudanese soldiers

ADDIS ABABA (XINHUA) – The Ethiopia National Defense Force (ENDF) has rejected allegations that it executed seven captive Sudanese soldiers.

The Ethiopian army wasn’t even present in the area of the alleged atrocity and as such couldn’t commit the alleged execution act, public relations director at the ENDF Getnet Adane told state media on Tuesday.

“The ENDF’s distinct trait is it handles any captives it has in its hands in a lawful and humane way,” Adane said.

Last Sunday, the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) issued a statement through the state-owned Sudan News Agency (SUNA) alleging that the Ethiopian army had executed seven captive Sudanese soldiers and one Sudanese civilian.
