Ethiopische rebellen rukken op naar Addis Ababa

November 8, 2021 - Forces from the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, Oromo Liberation Army, and other rebel groups are advancing towards the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa to establish a transitional government.

The rebel threat led Ethiopia’s government to declare a state of emergency last week while the United States and other countries urged citizens to leave immediately.

U.S. and African Union envoys have been holding urgent talks in Ethiopia in search of a ceasefire in a war that has killed thousands after political tensions with the Tigray forces, who once dominated the national government, turned deadly.
