“The war in Ethiopia, which for a year has largely been contained in one region, Tigray, has escalated into a ‘nationwide social convulsion’ with ‘open warfare that now engulfs the nation’, warned Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta this week. ‘The fighting must stop!’ Another neighbor of Ethiopia, Uganda, has called for East African leaders to attend a summit Nov. 16 to address the spreading warfare that might soon reach the capital, Addis Ababa, with the rapid advance of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front forces. Meanwhile, the 55-nation African Union has called on the warring parties to allow former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo to mediate a political solution. The AU also reminded Ethiopian fighters to abide by humanitarian law.” (11/05/21)
