Rebels Advance Toward Capital As Ethiopia Moves Deeper Into War

Ethiopian rebel forces innovative towards the country’s funds, threatening to widen a civil war raging in Africa’s second-most populous nation marked by allegations of ethnically determined atrocities and person-built famine.

Fighters from the Tigray People’s Liberation Front and allied militias in recent days have captured two strategic cities about 230 miles from Addis Ababa, expanding a conflict that for the previous 12 months had mainly been confined to Ethiopia’s north.
