The Ethiopian government has launched airstrikes on residential areas in Tigray for the second time this week, as the war against the Tigray People’s Liberation Front continues to rage in the north of the country.
The United Nations has said it is deeply concerned about the escalating and spreading conflict in Africa’s second-most populous country, which has now been grinding on for almost a year.
The war is now spilling over from Tigray into the neighbouring regions of Afar and Amhara, displacing hundreds of thousands more people.
Our Africa Correspondent John Sparks has gained access to Afar and sent this report from the town of Abala.
