3 monate vor


The Tigray conflict is escalating, affecting the whole region. Forces from Tigray say they have forged a military alliance with another armed group to heap pressure on the central government in Addis Abeba. This move comes just after Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed encouraged citizens to join the fight against resurgent Tigrayan forces. All this could aggravate the humanitarian crisis in the country's nine-month-old war. Thousands of people have died in the conflict and hundreds thousands more have been displaced or face famine. Meanwhile the fighting is spreading, threatening to destabilize the country even further.
