Could fighting in Ethiopia’s Tigray trigger a wider conflict? | Inside Story
The eight-month fight for Ethiopia’s Tigray region saw a sudden turn this week.
Rebel forces took back the provincial capital Mekelle, saying they’ll keep pushing to recapture the entire region.
They’ve also called the Ethiopian government’s ceasefire a ‘joke’.
But the Ethiopian army denies it’s losing ground.
Fighting has displaced more than two million people.
So, is this the end or the beginning of a wider conflict?
