Dozens of bodies have washed up on a river that marks the border between Ethiopia and Sudan.
Some of the bodies according witnesses had gunshot wounds and others had their hands bound.
A health worker who fled to Sudan to escape the fighting said he had buried 10 bodies over the past week and another 28 bodies had been recovered, including seven yesterday.
The Ethiopian government has not officially commented on the story.
The Setit River, which in Ethiopia is known as the Tekeze, flows through the conflict-hit northern Tigray region where Ethiopian forces and allied fighters have been battling with Tigray rebels.
