Lalibela: Ethiopia's Tigray rebels take Unesco world heritage town

I hadn't realized the violence had expanded beyond the Tigray region.
I'm very upset to learn of this. People who I made the acquaintance of during my visit are now refugees of this civil war's expansion.

This is truly appalling. I've also not been really following, but got an even stronger impression that Ethiopia is politically very frail. I'm not optimistic, for example with regard to the Oromo region...
