Rebel forces from Ethiopia’s Tigray region fired rockets into the city of Bahir Dar in the neighbouring Amhara region on Friday but caused no casualties or damage, the Amhara government said, as federal forces moved towards the Tigray capital. Reuters reports that the conflict in northern Ethiopia has killed hundreds over the past two weeks, sent 33,000 refugees into Sudan, and called into question whether Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed – Africa’s youngest leader and last year’s Nobel Peace Prize winner – can hold his ethnically divided nation together ahead of national elections next year amid reports of ethnically motivated killings.
