Sudan summons Ethiopia envoy over bodies found in river

CAIRO (AP) — Sudan has summoned Ethiopia’s envoy to the country over an incident where bodies were found floating down the river separating the two nations, as civil war wages in Ethiopia’s Tigray region. Sudan’s foreign ministry said in a statement late Tuesday that it summoned Ambassador Petal Amero on Aug. 30 to inform him about the discovery of more than two dozen bodies. Ethiopian refuges in the region have said that those found in the Setit river — also known as the Tekeze — were Ethnic Tigrayans. The river flows through some of the most troubled areas in the Tigray conflict.
