Ethiopian Prime Minister Orders Army to Respond to Tigray Attacks
Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed ordered the army to respond to attacks on a federal defense camp by forces linked to the governing party in the northern Tigray region, as the central government struggles to end ethnic violence shaking Africa’s second-most populous country.
“The red line is crossed,” Abiy said in a Facebook post early Wednesday. “Our Defense Forces, under the command of the Command Post, have been ordered to carry out their mission to save the country.”
Ethiopian government officials this week accused the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, once the pre-eminent power broker in national politics, of supporting a militia group, the Oromo Liberation Front-Shane, that it accuses of a massacre that killed at least 32 people. The TPLF has denied involvement. On Tuesday, members of the nation’s House of Representatives called for the designation of the TPLF and the OLF-Shane as terrorist groups.
