The conflict in northern Ethiopia is threatening to spill over the country’s borders and could set off a humanitarian crisis, say analysts.
The Ethiopian federal army seized the airport near the town of Humera on Tuesday amid a nearly week-old conflict in the northern Tigray region.
Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed started an offensive in Tigray last week, after accusing local forces in the area of attacking a military base.
Since then, hundreds have been killed and about 2,500 people have fled to neighbouring Sudan.
