Ethiopia’s prime minister has acknowledged for the first time that troops from neighbouring Eritrea have been in the Tigray region following the outbreak of conflict in November.

For months both countries have denied that troops crossed the border.

Abiy Ahmed told MPs that Eritrean forces came fearing they would be attacked by Tigray’s regional fighters.

The conflict began after the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) captured military bases in the region.
