In Ethiopia, the conflict over control of the northern region of Tigray is intensifying. In the capital Addis Ababa, security forces arrested numerous people from Tigray today. A d p a reporter observed how those arrested were taken away in two police vehicles. The reporter saw two vehicles carrying ethic Tigrayans, with some of them shouting “What did we do? We are innocent people.”At the weekend, a journalist close to the government had called on Facebook to lock people from Tigray in “concentration camps”. The message has since been deleted.

In the past few days, the central government, which is currently waging a military offensive against the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), has suffered several defeats. According to information from the rebels, the TPLF is said to have taken control of the city of Kombolcha in the Amhara region yesterday. The military had previously had to withdraw from the neighboring city of Dessie. The capture of the two cities gives the rebels access to one of the main highways into the capital, Addis Ababa.
