OTTAWA – Canadian Foreign Minister Melanie Joly on Friday urged citizens to leave Ethiopia immediately, saying Canada was very worried by the “rapidly deteriorating security situation”.

In a statement, Joly said the Canadian embassy in Addis Ababa remained open. Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s government and rebellious forces from the Tigray region have been fighting for more than a year.
