A surprise deal has been reached to stop Ethiopia’s civil war in Tigray after talks in South Africa.
The Ethiopian government and the Tigrayan People’s Liberation Front have agreed to a ‘permanent cessation of hostilities’.
Up to half a million people have died during two years of conflict.
Hundreds of thousands have escaped, and nine million urgently need food.
What are the terms of the deal?
