United Nations: 100,000 refugees in Tigray are threatened by food shortages


Geneva – (Reuters):
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees said Friday that about 100,000 Eritrean refugees in Tigray, Ethiopia, will face food shortages next week if the two parties to the conflict do not allow humanitarian aid to reach them.

On the level of the crisis between the region and the Ethiopian government, African peace envoys met with Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed on Friday, after announcing that the army would start the “last phase” of an attack that human rights groups fear would lead to large numbers of civilian casualties.
