Reports say a deal has been reached in the Ethiopian civil war with both sides agreeing to halt their two-year conflict which led to thousands of death and warnings of a famine.

The African Union, AU, has called it a new ‘down’ as both government forces should allow aid deliveries to resume.

The World Health Organization, WHO, say, almost ninety percent of the people in the northern Tigray region need food aid while noting that about a third of the region’s children are suffering from malnutrition.

According to reports, former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo who mediated the talks in South Africa said both sides agreed to a disarmament plan as well as unhindered access to humanitarian supplies.

Meanwhile, UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres said it was a welcome first step, which they hope would bring some solace to the millions of Ethiopian civilians that have really suffered during this conflict.
