Reports about sexual violence being used in the military offensive in the Tigray region have been emerging on Twitter and other social media for some time now. However, the issue did not receive systematic attention until recently.

On Thursday, the United Nations Special Representative of the Secretary-general on Sexual Violence in Conflict, Ms Pramila Patten, made an official statement about disturbing reports of rape in Tigray, including in the capital Mekelle, which the federal troops have gained control of.
