UNHCR appoints Fatou Bensouda to head Ethiopia conflict probe

The United Nations Human Rights Council has appointed former International Criminal Court prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, to head a team that will probe alleged violations during the conflict in Ethiopia.

In the team will be two other international experts, a Kenyan lawyer Kaari Betty Murungi and Steven Ratner of the United States.

They will serve on the newly-created International Commission of Human Rights Experts on Ethiopia and rule on the case where federal troops and rebels have been fighting.

The commission was handed a one-year renewable mandate to impartially investigate allegations of violations and abuses committed by all sides in the conflict.
