UN Says Armed Clashes Displace Over 50,000 Persons.

United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, says the number of people displaced by armed clashes from rural areas in the north of Ethiopia has increased to more than 50,000 since April 13.

A statement by the group said, most of the displaced people were mostly women, children, and the elderly, and were seeking refuge in the towns of Kobo and Sekota in the Amhara region.

The humanitarian situation is dire, with thousands of women and children in need of broad humanitarian support to survive, while, government and humanitarian partners have started providing food and health services, which remain inadequate due to limited resources.

The group in a previous report also said, an undetermined number of casualties were reported, while many civilians reportedly fled towards neighboring Kobo and Sekota
