A news agency in Ethiopia's Amhara region said on Wednesday that more than 10,000 Tigrayan troops had been "destroyed" during a three-week conflict raging in the mountainous north.

The report by the regional government-run AMMA agency in Amhara, where authorities back Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed's federal forces, could not be verified and nor was there any immediate response from the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF).

Phone and internet connections to Tigray are down and access to the area is strictly controlled, meaning all sides' statements are hard to verify.
