The Norwegian Nobel Committee has joined international voices calling on Ethiopia’s prime minister to end the country’s 14-month-long civil war. In a statement, it said Abiy Ahmed –– who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2019 — had a special responsibility to see an end to the bloodshed.
Just a year after getting the prize for ending a long war with Eritrea, Mr Abiy sent troops to fight rebels in the northern Tigray region. The war has forced millions from their homes. The government has been accused of blocking aid and there have been multiple allegations of atrocities being committed by all sides. Mr Abiy’s spokesperson Billene Seyoum had previously said that the Nobel Peace Prize was not “a shackle for inaction when the country is threatened.”

Prince Andrew is to face a civil case in the US over allegations he sexually assaulted a woman when she was 17. Virginia Giuffre is suing the prince, claiming he abused her in 2001. His lawyers said the complaint should be dismissed, citing a 2009 deal she signed with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. But a New York judge, Lewis A Kaplan ruled the case could continue.
The Queen has also stripped Prince Andrew of his military titles and royal patronages. The Duke of York will now defend the case as a “private citizen” Buckingham Palace announced, while it is believed he will cease to be called His Royal Highness (HRH) in any official capacity.
