Forces from Ethiopia’s Tigray region have looted the US government humanitarian agency’s warehouses in the neighbouring Amhara state.

The Head of USAID in Ethiopia told state television that Tigrayan fighters had deflated warehouses, taking food and other items and also stole trucks.

He added they had caused a great deal of destruction in the villages they went to.

It would be real led that last week, officials in Amhara accused Tigrayan forces of killing about 40 civilians and destroying schools, hospitals and other facilities. The Tigray rebel forces, who have been fighting federal troops and their allies for 10 months, have taken the war beyond their homeland, advancing through the neighbouring regions of Amhara and Afar. However, the Tigrayans have not reacted to the allegations.

In another development, many bodies remain unburied in South Sudan’s Western Equatoria state following a wave of violence.

Parliamentary Speaker who is from the south-western state Jemma Nunu Kumba says the ongoing killings in Western Equatoria’s Tambura County have led to a situation which has gotten almost out of hand.

She added that about 400 homes had been burnt down and killings were continuing on a daily basis.
