Ethiopia: Government forces launch air strikes in Tigray region

Ethiopia has again launched airstrikes against the capital of the northern Tigray region.

There has been fighting between Ethiopian and Tigrayan forces for almost a year now and the government’s blockade of the region has cut off the six million people who live there from much-needed humanitarian aid.

Today, the United Nations said it would be reducing by half the number of staff it has on the ground due to the volatile security situation.

We report from Addis Ababa.
