The Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed, has pledged to hold any soldier responsible for rape or pillage accountable

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed acknowledged for the first time the presence of troops from Eritrea in the Ethiopian province of Tigray, after the outbreak of conflict there last November.

For months, the two countries denied that troops crossed the border.

Abiy Ahmed told parliament members that the Eritrean forces came, for fear of being attacked by the Tigrayans Liberation Front fighters.

The conflict began after the TPLF took control of military bases belonging to the Addis Ababa government in the region.
