Ethiopia: Terror in Tigray
After an outbreak of conflict back in November last year between the Ethiopian military and the Tigray People's Liberation Front, thousands have been killed, and millions are now displaced. Soldiers from neighbouring Eritrea are also involved and suspected of carrying out some of the most brutal violence on civilians. Now, the UN has warned of an imminent famine, which is endangering the lives of millions in the region. Despite this, the Ethiopian government rejects reports of mass atrocities as politically motivated. In today's Stories of our times podcast, we ask: what's happening in Tigray?
