United Nations Humanitarian Chief, Mr Mark Lowcock has warned that famine is imminent in Ethiopia’s embattled Tigray Region.
Mr Lowock said the same threat faces the Country’s North, while there is a risk that hundreds of thousands of people or more, will die.
He said the economy has been destroyed along with businesses, crops and farms; and there are no Banking or Telecommunications Services.
Mr Lowcock, in a statement, said the International Community needs to step up aid to that Country.
He added that there are more than a million people in places controlled by Tigrayan opposition forces and there have been deliberate sustained attempts to stop them from getting food.
