Opposition parties in the Tigray region of Ethiopia have warned of a huge “humanitarian catastrophe” if humanitarian aid did not arrive urgently to the area that witnessed armed confrontations between government forces and armed opposition parties.

The opposition said the population was already dying of hunger, and urged the international community to intervene.

For its part, the Ethiopian government says that the distribution of aid has begun, and has reached nearly 1.5 million people so far.

The opposition said 52,000 people have been killed since the outbreak of the conflict last November.
