HeadlineJan 12, 2022

Aid workers in Ethiopia say at least 17 people, including women and children, were killed when a drone bombed a flour mill in the Tigray region on Monday. A separate attack killing two people was also reported. The attacks came on the same day President Biden spoke by phone with Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed. The White House says Biden raised concerns about civilian casualties in Ethiopia’s 14-month conflict in Tigray that’s left thousands of people dead and millions displaced.
