Dozens of people reportedly killed or injured after Ethiopia’s air force bombs market in northern region of Tigray

Dozens of people have reportedly been killed or injured after Ethiopia’s air force bombed a market in the northern region of Tigray.

The Ethiopian military denied targeting civilians, saying it carried out the strikes to neutralise terrorists.

Tigrayan rebel forces are said to have made advances in recent days. However, this has been denied by the Ethiopian government.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said it helped evacuate the wounded. Meanwhile, the UN called on Ethiopia to investigate the reported air strike.

Thousands of people have been killed and millions displaced after conflict erupted almost eight months ago.
