Forces from Ethiopia’s Tigray region in recent weeks looted warehouses belonging to the US government’s humanitarian agency in the Amhara region, USAID’s Ethiopia director has said. “We do have proof that several of our warehouses have been looted and completely emptied in the areas, particularly in Amhara, where TPLF soldiers have gone into,” the director, Sean Jones, told state broadcaster EBC in an interview televised on Tuesday. Up to 900,000 people in Tigray are already in famine conditions, while five million others are in desperate need of humanitarian assistance, USAID estimates. For the first time in nine months of war, aid workers this week will run out of food to deliver to millions of people who are going hungry, the head of USAID said last week, blaming the government for restricting access.
