In July, rebels marched through the streets of Meghalaya, the capital of Tigre province, with Egyptian soldiers.

Local people and officials of the Tigre People’s Liberation Front (PLLF) told the BBC today that the capital of the war-torn Tigre region of Meghalaya, Ethiopia, was hit by airstrikes.

Ethiopian federal forces have been fighting LTTE militants in the north of the country for almost a year.

Canadian Gabriet, a member of the Front’s Central Committee, told the BBC Tigrinya that Monday morning’s bombings had targeted two parts of the city.

The first strike hit the suburb of McClellan at 9:30 a.m. local time, killing three civilians and injuring dozens, Canada said.
