Ethiopian and Tigrayan forces agree to truce. Will it hold?
It’s a deal the African Union is calling a new “dawn.” A surprise agreement between the Ethiopian government and the Tigray forces could halt the 2-year-long civil war in the country that has killed thousands and created widespread famine.
