Church suspends humanitarian activities in Tigray
September 01, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: Ethiopian and Eritrean troops are fighting against the regional government and local rebels in the Tigray War, which began in November 2020. “At present the current tensions in the northern area of the country force the Church to suspend the emergency response intervention,” the bishops’ conference said in a statement.
Correction: The Ethiopian bishops’ conference later issued a clarification, indicating that they had not intentionally suspended relief work, but had been unable to proceed with humanitarian operations because of the disruptions caused by the civil war.
