Ethiopia has announced that military troops from neighboring Eritrea have started to evacuate the conflict-hit Tigray region situated between the two African states.

This comes Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed finally acknowledging their presence amid mounting reports of massacres and widespread sexual violence.

However, residents of some Tigray cities and towns have continued to report the presence of Eritrean soldiers in recent days.

Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch (HRW) have accused Eritrean troops of massacring hundreds of people in the Tigrayan town of Axum in November.

The G7 group of leading nations had also called for their rapid withdrawal.

Abiy sent troops into Tigray in November, a move he said came in response to TPLF-orchestrated attacks on federal army camp.
