The conflict in Ethiopia is forcing thousands of people to flee from Tigray into neighbouring Sudan.
Aid agencies say about 2,000 refugees are arriving every day.

Aid is starting to arrive at refugee camps in Sudan along its border with Ethiopia.
Thousands of refugees have been crossing into the area over the past two weeks, fleeing the fighting in Tigray.

Tens of thousands of people have fled Ethiopia to escape ethnic persecution as civil war rages in the Tigray region.

Most have nothing and have walked for up to 12 days in the blistering heat with little food to get to the border with Sudan.

There, they are given a wristband, which entitles them to basic provisions at a refugee camp last used during Ethiopia's famine in the 1980s.
A "full-scale humanitarian #crisis" is unfolding in #Ethiopia, the United Nations refugee agency said on Tuesday, with more than 27,000 now having fled heavy fighting to #Sudan. FRANCE 24's Bastien Renouil tells us more.
