Residents in western Ethiopia say they are living in fear following attacks where at least 50 people are feared to have been killed in an area in Oromia region.

Local residents say security forces had recently left the area and are blaming members of the Fano militia group for the violence earlier in the week.

Houses were set on fire and properties were looted during the attacks.

The regional authorities have not yet responded to the BBC’s requests for comment.
