Peace Breakthrough - Ethiopia Ends 'Endless' Eritrea War

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed's government says it will fully accept and put into operation the Algiers accord, signed in 2000, that ended its war with Eritrea. A state of emergency has also been lifted two months early. The decision on the peace deal means Ethiopia will have to cede disputed land it has occupied for nearly 20 years.
