Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Ethiopia-Sudan border dispute: Attacks increase in al-Fashaga” – below is their description.
Al-Fashaga is a 3,000km square (1,58 square-mile) fertile region claimed by both Sudan and Ethiopia.
In November last year, Sudan’s military moved to take over al-Fashaga, which the government claims under a colonial agreement dating back to 1902.
Fighting caused by the dispute has led to the repeated closure of the Gallabat border crossing and Ethiopia says border talks will not resume unless Sudan’s army retreats.
Al Jazeera’s Hiba Morgan reports from Gallabat, on the Sudan-Ethiopia border.
