    The United Nations World Food Programme says its teams are struggling to reach Ethiopia’s Tigray region by road and air.

    Ethiopia’s government declared a ceasefire this week, right before a major bridge in Tigray was destroyed, cutting off a crucial supply route.

    It is not clear who is responsible for the damage.

    The government denies it is deliberately stifling the aid effort.
