Thousands of people have rallied in Ethiopia’s capital to show their support for federal troops fighting in the northern region of Tigray.
Speakers called on Ethiopians to be unified against rebels in Tigray.
They accused them of using child soldiers.
It comes as the conflict has widened to include fighters from the neighbouring Amhara and Afar regions.
