Is an all-out civil war now likely in Ethiopia? | Inside Story

3 monate vor


Months of violence in Ethiopia's Tigray region have highlighted the growing ethnic divide, awakened old rivalries and produced odd alliances. And Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed might be complicating things even further Earlier this week he called on all capable Ethiopians to join the army and stop the region's rebels 'once and for all'. But in a twist of events, The Tigray People's Liberation Front - THE TPLF - responded by joining forces with another rebel group, the Oromo Liberation Army, to fight the government. It means the conflict is no longer contained in one region and there are growing fears it could lead to an all out civil war. How much of a threat does this pose to Abiy Ahmed... and to Ethiopia?
