TPLF: Ethiopian government using ‘starvation as a weapon’
On UpFront, Marc Lamont Hill speaks with Tigray People’s Liberation Front adviser, Fesseha Asghedom.
A year into a conflict between government forces and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), Ethiopia has seen thousands of lives lost and more than a million people displaced.
Now, a larger humanitarian crisis looms, with nearly half a million Ethiopians facing starvation.
International and regional diplomats are working to contain the conflict and stave off the spectre of famine. But is there a way to avoid catastrophe?
This week on UpFront, Marc Lamont Hill speaks with the adviser to the regional state government of Tigray and former UN ambassador, Fesseha Asghedom.
