The Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) says it has taken control of the key town of Kemise, about 325km (200 miles) from the capital, Addis Ababa.

The government has not yet commented, and there is no independent confirmation of the claim.

TPLF central committee member Kindeya Geberehiwot told BBC Tigrinya that the group’s fighters took Kemise on Wednesday, following the capture a few days ago of the cities of Dessie and Kombolcha.

BBC Tigrinya tried to get comment from a spokesperson of the Ethiopian National Defence Force, but he did not answer his phone.
