Ethiopian Rebel forces.

Rebel forces in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region have re-taken its capital, Mekelle, sparking street celebrations and forcing officials to flee.

Reports say residents were seen rejoicing with fireworks and thousands waving flags.
The Government, which took Mekelle last November after Tigrayan rebels rejected political reforms and captured army bases, has called for a humanitarian ceasefire in the region.

According to the reports, the fighting has left thousands dead and pushed three hundred and fifty thousand towards famine.
