ADDIS ABABA. A 7I-year-old Australian nurse has vowed to remain “while there is breath in my body” on the frontline of an escalating conflict in Ethiopia to selflessly tend to the wounded. Ethiopia has declared a state of emergency as it veers towards all-out civil war, with the UN on Friday appealing to the impoverished African nation to broker a ceasefire. The bloody conflict in Africa’s second most populous country between the Tigray People’s Liberation Front and government troops has killed thousands of people and left millions of others homeless. Thousands of locals and foreigners, including from the UK and US, have been rounded up by authorities and detained without explanation, causing panic in the capital.
