DW News published this video item, entitled “National state of emergency declared in Ethiopia | DW News” – below is their description.
Ethiopia’s government has declared a national state of emergency and ordered residents of Addis Ababa to prepare to defend their neighborhoods — as Tigrayan forces make rapid gains and advance towards the capital.
Fighters from the northern Tigray region say they have seized two cities about 400 kilometers away from Addis Ababa. The rebels have been locked in a brutal war with government forces since last year.
The conflict has plunged hundreds of thousands of people in Tigray into famine, left thousands of civilians dead, and forced millions to flee their homes.
