Eritrea denies troop incursion into Ethiopia's Tigray

NAIROBI (Reuters) - Eritrea’s government denied on Tuesday an accusation by the leader of Ethiopia’s Tigray region that its troops had crossed the border in support of a federal government military offensive against the restive northern state.

“This is an internal conflict. We are not part of the conflict,” Eritrea’s Foreign Minister Osman Saleh Mohammed told Reuters by telephone.
