CWN Editor's Note: Almost 5,000 people have died, mostly from malnutrition, as a result of Ethiopia’s blockade of the Tigray region, the Fides news service reports. Local health officials report that many deaths have been caused by treatable diseases as well as malnutrition, as health facilities in the region have been almost completely destroyed in the conflict that began late in 2020.
