More brutal war is undergoing now in Ethiopia than in Ukraine
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has distracted public attention away from other crises, such as those in Yemen, Mozambique, and Africa’s Sahel area, which lies just south of the Sahara. Ethiopia, Africa’s second-most populated country, is in a deadly civil war for more than 2 years.
The battle between Abiy’s soldiers and the rebel Tigray People’s Liberation Front appears to have ceased. However, human rights and multilateral organisations have denounced crimes committed by both sides.
Abiy’s leadership is trying to smear World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus as his family is from Tigray.
The death count of the war is unknown. Researchers from Belgium’s Ghent University believe that up to 500,000 people have died so far.

Some of the tests which Pyongyang claimed were satellite launches that may be a part of the ICBM system, according to the US and South Korea.
Great Barrier Reef is undergoing coral bleaching due to warmer climatic conditions
The Great Barrier Reef in Australia is experiencing a mass bleaching event due to heat stress from warmer seas, reef authority reported.
Reef Authority maintains the world’s largest coral reef system. According to a report by the Reef Authority, an airborne inspection revealed coral bleaching at various reefs, “confirming a major bleaching event, the fourth since 2016.”
Coral suffered despite the cooling influence of the La Nina weather phenomena, which is now influencing Australia’s climate, they said.

It happens when corals expel algae from their tissues, robbing them of their bright colours.
Though bleached corals are stressed, they can recover if conditions improve, according to the Reef Authority.
