“Air strike kills three in Eritrean refugee camp in Ethiopia” – UN

The United Nations said on Thursday an air strike hit a refugee camp in northern Ethiopia’s Tigray region, killing three Eritrean refugees, including two children.

The strike on Wednesday hit Mai Aini refugee camp near the southern Tigrayan town of Mai Tsebri, the United Nations said.

“Three Eritrean refugees, two of them children, were killed,” the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) head Filippo Grandi said in a statement, adding that four other refugees were injured.

The United Nations did not specify who carried out the strike but only the Ethiopian government has air power in the area, Reuters reports.
