Ethiopia’s border fight: The war against al-Shabaab

Africa Correspondent

While Ethiopia’s conflict rages in the north of the country, another enemy is looking to exploit the situation in the east.

Somali militants from the Al-Qaeda linked al-Shabaab are trying to expand their area of influence and they’ve increased their activity across Ethiopia’s border.

Locals want the government to provide resources and tighten up security to stop the militants entering the country.

We have been on patrol with the local forces on the border.
