The Ethiopian armed force has obstructed one of the fundamental streets prompting its fringe with Sudan, forestalling Ethiopians escaping the battle in Tigray from arriving at the neighboring nation, as per evacuees who showed up Thursday at the Lugdi outskirt crossing in eastern Sudan.
"The Ethiopian armed force has sliced the street prompting the Sudanese fringe at the region of Humera (20 km from the outskirt) and those looking to arrive at Sudan must evade the primary street and pass through the fields without being seen by fighters," Tesfai Burhano, who had quite recently shown up in Lugdi, told AFP.
On Thursday, the fringe post was vacant and no Ethiopian fighters were noticeable. An AFP journalist saw around ten exiles crossing the fringe while he was there.
The quantity of Ethiopian exiles escaping to Sudan has dropped altogether over the previous week, as per figures from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). On Wednesday, the UN office checked 718 appearances, contrasted with 3,813 on November 21.
Interchanges are cut in Tigray, making it hard to confirm a few cases.
A Sudanese security official affirmed the drop in exile appearances to AFP, without giving any clarification.
