A senior official from Ethiopia's northern Tigray region says Eritrean forces are still committing atrocities despite the recent deal with Addis Ababa to bring an end to the two-year war.

Tigray People's Liberation Front spokesman Getachew Reda said Eritrean forces were killing civilians and looting and destroying property.

Several human rights organisations have accused Eritrean soldiers of committing atrocities in Ethiopia in the past, but these claims have been denied by Eritrean officials.

Mr Getachew also said Tigrayan fighters would not lay down their arms until the federal government ensured the withdrawal of Eritrean and other forces from the region.

An Ethiopian official said the Eritrean issue would be resolved as soon as federal troops were stationed in Tigray's border areas.
