Witnesses say airstrike in Ethiopia’s Tigray kills dozens

Airstrike in Togoga comes amid fighting in the Tigray region

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) – Health workers in Ethiopia’s Tigray region say an airstrike has hit a busy village market and soldiers have blocked medical teams from travelling to the scene. They and a former resident cite witnesses saying dozens of people were killed. One doctor in Tigray’s regional capital says health workers at the scene have reported “more than 80 civilian deaths.”

The alleged airstrike in Togoga comes amid some of the fiercest fighting in the Tigray region since the conflict began in November.
