Drone Strike Kills 17 People at Flour Mill in Northern Ethiopia

  • Scores killed in air strikes in Tigray region since October
  • Joe Biden raised concerns about air strikes in call with Abiy

A drone strike hit a flour mill in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region, killing at least 17 people, according to aid workers.

The incident follows a series of air attacks since October that have left hundreds of people dead. Last week, at least 58 people died when several air strikes hit a school that was turned into an internally-displaced people’s center in Dedebit town in northwest Tigray.
