ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - Six explosions were reported in the Eritrean capital, Asmara, late on Saturday, the U.S. State Department said on Twitter although the cause and location were not clear.
“At 10:13 p.m. on Nov 28 there were six explosions in Asmara,” the State Department said in the post on Sunday.
On Saturday, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed announced that federal forces had taken control of Mekelle, Tigray’s capital, within hours of launching an offensive there.
The Tigrayan People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), a political party whose fight against the government began on Nov. 4, said it was withdrawing from Mekelle.
The TPLF regards Eritrea, which has warm relations with Abiy, as an archenemy.
