Possible Additional US Sanctions on Ethiopia and Eritrea

 Reuters published on 27 May 2021 an article titled "US Warns of Further Action against Ethiopia, Eritrea over Tigray" by Daphne Psaledakis and Patricia Zengerle.

The US acting assistant secretary of state for African affairs testified before the US Senate that the United States is looking at a range of other sanctions on Ethiopia and Eritrea if those stoking conflict in Ethiopia fail to reverse course.  He added while ethnic conflict in Tigray is the worst in Ethiopia, there are also attacks on ethnic Amhara, Gumuz and Oromo.
