Could fighting in Ethiopia's Tigray trigger a wider conflict?

Published
The eight-month fight for Ethiopia's Tigray region saw a sudden turn this week.

Rebel forces took back the provincial capital Mekelle, saying they'll keep pushing to recapture the entire region.

They've also called the Ethiopian government's ceasefire a 'joke'.

But the Ethiopian army denies it's losing ground.

Fighting has displaced more than two million people.

So, is this the end or the beginning of a wider conflict?
