Fourteen-year-old Mibrak Esayus recalls the day last November when she says Eritrean soldiers burst into her home in Ethiopia’s Tigray region and killed her mother and father.

It was 10 days into Ethiopia’s military campaign against fighters from the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), the region’s former ruling party, following their surprise assault on federal army bases in Tigray.

The family heard shooting outside their home in the town of Zalambessa, on the border with Eritrea, from around dawn, Mibrak said. Eritrean soldiers burst in around midday.
