Too late to prevent civil war? Thousands flee as Ethiopia's Tigray conflict escalates
Issued on: Modified:
Just 13 months ago, Ethiopia's prime minister was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Now critics say Abiy Ahmed is leading his nation into war.

There are accusations of atrocities on both sides and the UN is already warning of possible war crimes. What's the endgame?
