Eritrea refugees in Ethiopia ‘run out of food’

BBC, 02 Dec 2020
Thousands of Eritrean refugees in Ethiopia's conflict-hit northern region of Tigray have run out of food, the UN's refugee agency, UNHCR, has said.

It appealed for urgent access to the region to provide emergency assistance.

Communications and aid access have been blocked since the start of the conflict between the federal government fighters loyal to Tigray leaders a month ago.

Nearly 100,000 Eritrean refugees are in Tigray. They fled political persecution and compulsory military service.
