The Ethiopian government has declared a ceasefire in the Tigray region – eight months after Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed sent troops to oust its leadership.
The announcement came as witnesses reported anti-government troops in the streets of Tigray’s capital, Mekelle.
All sides have been accused of carrying out mass killings and human rights violations.
More more than five million people are in urgent need of food aid, the UN says, with 350,000 facing famine.
