The Addis Ababa Massacre

On Sunday 21st February the massacre continued but was officially terminated by the Fascist Party officials in Addis Ababa at noon. Believed to have been on the orders of Mussolini, who was concerned about news of the massacre demonstrating to the international community that the Italians were actually not in control of Ethiopia, the termination angered the Blackshirts, who defied the Party officials by continuing the killing in the suburbs throughout the third day.
