Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed says he is launching the "final phase" of the army's operation in Tigray with an attack on the regional capital, Mekelle.

He said the military would try not to harm civilians and urged people to stay at home.

It comes after a deadline he gave for Tigray fighters to surrender passed on Wednesday.
