Report from Mekelle, Ethiopia on Rebuilding after War

 The Financial Times published on 4 October 2023 a comprehensive article from Mekelle titled "Ethiopia's Plan to Rebuild in the Wake of a 'Brutal' War" by Andres Schipani.  

The article notes that slowly Ethiopia is coming back from the cold, although peace is tenuous.  Continuing violence in Amhara Region and the presence of Eritrean Defense Forces in parts of Tigray Region have resulted in 200,000 battle-hardened Tigrayan Defense Forces keeping their small arms.
