(CNN) Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said Tuesday that his government would hold accountable any soldier found responsible for rape or looting in the country's conflict region of Tigray, just days after CNN and the UK's Channel 4 News published investigations into rape being used as a weapon of war against women.
"Reports indicate that atrocities have been committed in Tigray region," Abiy wrote in a post on his Twitter account.
Forces from neighboring Eritrea are participating in the military campaign on the side of Ethiopia's government, as CNN has previously reported.
CNN unveiled medical records and testimony from survivors, alleging that women were being gang-raped, drugged and held hostage by soldiers.
High-level UN agency officials issued a rare statement late Monday demanding the allegations of rape and other forms of sexual violence in the region be investigated.
