Ethiopia warns Eritrea af­ter bor­der clash

Pakistan Observer - - INTERNATIONAL -

AD­DIS ABABA—Arch-ri­vals Ethiopia and Eritrea traded blame Tues­day for one of the fiercest bor­der clashes since a 1998-2000 war, with Ad­dis Ababa warn­ing any fur­ther con­flict is “up to As­mara.”

The neigh­bours are bit­ter en­e­mies, with tens of thou­sands of troops dug into trenches eye­ing each other along the heav­ily for­ti­fied fron­tier.

On Sun­day, fight­ing broke out around the Tsorona area — re­port­edly in­volv­ing heavy ar­tillery — with each blam­ing the other for start­ing the fight and claim­ing heavy losses suf­fered by their op­po­nent.—AFP
