The United Nations has again called for full access to Ethiopia’s Tigray region to investigate alleged human rights violations.

Ethiopia’s army has been fighting the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), a small band of insurgents who became a guerrilla arm, for almost seven weeks.

The conflict has displaced almost 950,000 people, many of them have fled to neighbouring Sudan. Access for humanitarian workers had been impossible until recently. The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, said two humanitarian assessment missions were able to enter the region on Monday.
