The Spokesperson for the United Nations Secretary-General, Stephane Dujarric, says the United Nations (UN) is worried about "ongoing tensions" in Ethiopia's Tigray region and the effect on the civilian population.
He adds in a news brief that the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) is working with the Sudanese authorities to assist over 7,000 refugees already in the country after fleeing from their homes for safety in the last two days.
