Ethiopia PM seen in combat gear after vowing to be at Warfront to fight Rebels

The Ethiopian State media have shown footage of the Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed, in a rural location wearing a military uniform, after saying days ago that he would head to the frontline to direct the conflict.

The government has announced new restrictions on reporting the war, in which Tigrayan rebels are said to be continuing their advance towards the capital.

In a warning to news outlets and social media users, it has banned the reporting of any military movements or updates from the battlefield unless the information has been approved by the government.

In an interview, he sounded defiant and said government troops had retaken some territory.
