Ethiopia PM admits Eritrean soldiers entered Tigray region
Al Jazeera, 24 Mar 2021
Ethiopia's Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has confirmed for the first time that Eritrean troops entered the Ethiopian region of Tigray during the conflict that broke out five months ago, suggesting they may have been involved in abuses against civilians.
Witnesses told Al Jazeera last month they had seen Eritrean forces in Tigray, saying that they had committed egregious crimes while they were there.
Eritrean soldiers have denied ever being in Tigray.
