Thousands of Ethiopians displaced after escalating conflict in Tigray region

Forces from Ethiopia’s Tigray region have fired missiles across the border into Eritrea – hitting the outskirts of the capital.

Tigray’s regional president described it as a “legitimate military target” – claiming Eritrean forces were collaborating with Ethiopia and fighting what he called a “full scale war”.

The escalating conflict has forced thousands of Ethiopians to flee into  neighbouring Sudan.
