The following contains spoilers about the latest episode of "The Mandalorian," subtitled "The Jedi." (CNN) The worst-kept secret in the "Star Wars" universe brought a huge fan favorite to "The Mandalorian" -- moving the show further into the orbit of the animated series "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" and "Star Wars Rebels," while adding details about the merchandising bonanza alternately known until now as "Baby Yoda" and "The Child." The latest chapter was written and directed by Dave Filoni, who oversaw the "Star Wars" animated series -- where Ahsoka first appeared in 2008 -- before joining Jon Favreau as an executive producer on "The Mandalorian," the first live-action TV series in the franchise. Ahsoka said she wouldn't continue that training, suggesting that Grogu had already formed a strong attachment to the Mandalorian. In the climactic sequence, she mentioned her pursuit of Grand Admiral Thrawn, a villain from "Star Wars Rebels."

REUTERS/Mohamed Nureldin AbdallahNAIROBI (Reuters) - The United Nations urged Ethiopia on Monday to ensure the protection of civilians, a day after Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed gave Tigrayan forces 72 hours to surrender before a military offensive on the regional capital of Mekelle. Hundreds, possibly thousands, have been killed in fighting that erupted on Nov. 4 between Ethiopian federal forces and Tigray’s regional army, sending more than 30,000 refugees into neighbouring Sudan. Catherine Sozi, the U.N. humanitarian coordinator for Ethiopia, told Reuters that she hoped for the guarantee of safety and security of aid workers and the “protection of more than 525,000 civilian (non-combatants) who live in Mekelle”. On Sunday, Abiy gave Tigrayan regional forces 72 hours to surrender before the military begins an offensive on Mekelle. “We urge you to surrender peacefully within 72 hours, recognising that you are at the point of no return,” Abiy said in a message posted on Twitter on Sunday.

ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - Ethiopia’s Tigray rebel forces fired rockets into the city of Bahir Dar in the Amhara region on Friday but caused no damage, the regional government said. The northern-based Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) effectively ruled Ethiopia for decades as the strongest force in a multi-ethnic coalition, until Abiy took power two years ago. “The illegal TPLF group have launched a rocket attack around 1:40 a.m. in Bahir Dar,” the regional government’s communications office said on its Facebook page. “The rockets have caused no damage.”Amhara state has sent troops into Tigray in support of Abiy. Ethiopia said on Thursday it was closing in on Mekelle, the capital of Tigray region.

ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - Ethiopia’s government on Thursday said rebels have committed “serious crimes” after conflict broke out this month in the northern Tigray region, as U.S. President-elect Joe Biden’s foreign policy adviser called for greater protection of civilians. The Ethiopian government statement referenced reports of ethnic killings in the town of Mai Kadra, documented by human rights group Amnesty International this week. There was no immediate response from the leadership of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), which is leading the rebellion. The TPLF and Ethiopian authorities should take urgent steps to end the conflict, enable humanitarian access, and protect civilians,” he tweeted. Tigray civilians in Sudan last week told Reuters that they were targeted by government-affiliated militia because of their ethnicity.

World Food Program/Handout via REUTERS“Tigray is now a hell to its enemies,” they said in a statement on the two-week offensive against them. In a lengthy statement, the Tigrayan leaders accused federal forces of targeting civilians, churches and homes, while blocking internet, electricity and banking services. Nevertheless, Tigrayan forces had captured tanks and artillery and would soon drive their enemies out despite being massively outnumbered, it added. “The wider world will soon testify the amazing victories achieved by the people and government of Tigray,” the Tigrayan statement added. “We have shifted our defence line and as a result they get into some towns of South Tigray,” he added.
