Ethiopia’s Tigray conflict: Foreigners advised to leave

Germany and France have become the latest countries to advise their citizens to leave Ethiopia, amid an escalation in the country’s civil war.

The US and UK have also recently issued advisories, and the UN has begun what it describes as a temporary relocation of some staff.

Reports from the front line are hard to verify but the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) says its fighters are in control of a town just over 200km from Addis Ababa.

The Ethiopian government has previously denied reports of rebel advances.

The African Union is leading efforts to find a negotiated end to the fighting, but neither side has committed to talks.
