|Aksum amok case|
|Weapon(s)|| Guns |
One night the two, who had sworn to take revenge on the winning party after losing a lawsuit over land, entered a house in which the villagers had gathered to celebrate a wedding ceremony, and with guns and knives killed six of the people therein, among them three children. The men then fled into the woods, but reappeared at their victims' funeral, where they shot dead two more villagers and a child, and also dangerously wounded two men and a woman during their flight. The next day they killed another villager, his wife, and their three children, whereupon a large force of armed police was dispatched to the area to apprehend the murderers. The two resisted arrest and were killed during their fight with the police forces.
