صراع: أطول حرب في أفريقيا قد تنتهي أخيرا infographic

أطول حرب في أفريقيا قد تنتهي أخيرا

June 7, 2018 -- Two decades after a border war erupted between Eritrea and Ethiopia, Addis Ababa says it will abide by a 2002 border commission ruling, offering Eritrea a chance to end Africa’s longest war.

Ethiopia’s ruling party, Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front, says it will fully accept ruling that would entail ceding disputed town of Badme to Eritrea.

Tens of thousands of people were killed in the two-year conflict and Eritrea remains on a war footing, demanding that Ethiopia withdraws from the "occupied territory".

If Ethiopia follows through, the move could help settle some of the differences between the two archrivals on the Horn of Africa.

Peace with Eritrea is part of radical reform agenda initiated by Ethiopia’s new prime minister Abiy Ahmed to open up country after 26 years of authoritarian rule.


21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
