At least six students are feared dead after an attack on a bus in Ethiopia's northern region of Tigray. Eyewitnesses said there were clashes between soldiers escorting the vehicle and the attackers. They said the bus was stopped many times at road blocks as it made its way from a graduation ceremony in the regional capital Mekelle.
It is not clear who carried out the attack, but this shows Tigray is still volatile months after the federal government said the conflict with the regional authorities was over.
