The pan-African organisation calls for a ceasefire in Ethiopia's Tigray region

The African Union has called for a ceasefire in Ethiopia's northern Tigray region, where federal troops are engaged in an offensive against the local government that they accuse of attacking a military base last week.

"The chairperson (Moussa Faki Mahamat) appeals for the immediate cessation of hostilities and calls on parties to respect human rights and ensure the protection of civilians," the AU bloc said in a statement, also urging talks.
