UN Calls for Access to Tigray Refugees

Refugees fleeing to Sudan from the conflict in Ethiopia's Tigray region are sharing "harrowing accounts of being stopped by armed groups and robbed of their possessions", according to a United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees spokesperson. The agency is also concerned over the safety and condition of Eritrean refugees in Tigray who have been caught in the conflict and left without access to services and supplies for more than a month.
