(The African Stand) — The government of Ethiopia’s Tigray region has declared a local state of emergency to fight an “invasion”, its TV station said on Thursday, as federal troops claimed advances in the week-long conflict.

“It is now necessary to declare a state of emergency to defend our people and our sovereignty from the invasion of outsiders,” Tigray TV quoted the regional authority as saying in a statement.
