Ethiopia’s Tigray conflict spreads to the Amhara region

Since the beginning of the summer, the conflict in Tigray, in northern Ethiopia, has spread to neighboring regions, particularly Amhara.

The Ethiopian federal army, backed by regional Amhara forces and militias, is fighting troops from the TPLF, the Tigray People’s Liberation Front.

Since fighting broke out last November, the warring parties have been repeatedly accused of committing serious human rights violations.

This new front is no exception. Our journalists were able to report from the Amhara region, where civilians continue to pay a high price in this conflict. Report by Maria Gerth-Niculescu and Marika Julien.
