Ethiopia PM in Military Outfit after Vowing to Fight
The Ethiopian government has announced new restrictions on reporting the war, in which Tigrayan rebels are said to be continuing their advance towards the capital.
In a warning to news outlets and social media users, it has “banned the reporting of any military movements or updates from the battlefield,” unless the information has been approved by the government.
Meanwhile state media have shown footage of the Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed, in a rural location wearing a military uniform, after saying days ago that he would head to the frontline to direct the conflict.
In an interview he sounded defiant and said “government troops had retaken some territory.”
