Ethiopian PM Says Military Entering “Final Phase” as Conflict’s Humanitarian Toll Mounts

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed is rejecting international pleas to end the country’s two-week-old conflict, and said military operations in the semi-autonomous northern state of Tigray are entering their “final phase.”

Hundreds of people have died since Ethiopian troops began the attack on Tigray on November 4. More than 25,000 refugees have fled into Sudan.
