REUTERS, 14TH DECEMBER, 2020 - Ethiopia sent civil servants in Tigray back to work on Monday and ordered gun owners to disarm as Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s government sought to show normality in the still-isolated northern region after weeks of war.


Some power and telephone links were also restored in regional capital Mekelle after a virtual communications blackout since federal troops’ Nov. 4 offensive. But there were reports of massive fuel and food price hikes, plus water shortages.


Tigray is still off-limits to journalists without a permit.
