In international news, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has gone to the frontlines of battle, according to Ethiopian state media. Government operations have been handed over to the deputy prime minister. Abiy Ahmed challenged Tigrayan forces to meet him on the battlefield as they threaten to march on the capital Addis Ababa. The year-long conflict has claimed thousands of lives, displaced millions, and has led to widespread violations of human rights from all involved parties, according to the U.N. — some of which could amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity.
