WHO chief Tedros accuses Abiy government of intentionally starving Tigrayans to death

The Director General of the World Health Organization Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Tuesday accused the government of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali of intentionally starving Tigrayans to death by imposing one of the longest blockades in history in northern Ethiopia.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali attends the EU-Africa summit in Brussels, Belgium, in February 2022.

Speaking at his regular weekly press briefing in Geneva, Switzerland, just days after returning from war-torn Ukraine, Mr. Ghebreyesus recalled his own childhood growing up in a war zone, and lamented that like in Ukraine, northern Ethiopia has been under one of the longest blockades in history, and now people are starving to death.

He called on the Ethiopian and Eritrean governments “to end the siege now, get supplies into the region on a regular and sustainable basis, and work for peace.”
