The World Health Organization says that despite repeated requests to the Ethiopian government, it still has no access to Tigray – where 14 months of war have created a humanitarian crisis. A WHO senior official said he’d received letters from doctors in the northern region who had run out of basic treatments for illnesses such as diabetes. According to the Director-General of the WHO Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus – the region’s population of seven million had been under siege for more than a year. He said this had created a “hell” in the region and was an “insult to our humanity to allow a situation like this to continue”. “Nowhere in the world are we witnessing hell like in Tigray,” he said.
