Ethiopia - Passion Week

(ANS - Pugnido) - The massacre that took place on April 15 on the border between South Sudan and Ethiopia is a deep wound for the local population. 208 people were killed and more than 100 children abducted, not to mention the pillage of about 2000 cows, in a world where pastoralism is the main source of livelihood. Fr Filippo Perin, a Salesian missionary in Pugnido in the Gambella region, not far from the site of the massacre, said: "We are concluding Lent, we have got to Palm Sunday and we are beginning the week of the Passion ... We are living three days of mourning in Gambella region for what has happened."
