Biden Concerned Over Civilian Deaths In Ethiopia

US President Joe Biden has raised concerns about civilian deaths caused by recent airstrikes in Ethiopia during a with Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.

This comes on the heels of reports that over 50 displaced people were killed in an airstrike in northwest Tigray on Friday.

According to a White House statement, President Obama welcomed the release of opposition leaders and pledged his support for a peaceful resolution to the conflict with Tigrayan rebels.

Relations between Washington and Addis Abeba have been strained, with the government irritated by repeated criticism of human violations during the conflict with Tigrayan rebels.

The fact that Mr. Biden and Mr. Abiy spoke on the phone at all is perhaps a sign of progress.
