Sarah (Brit Marling), an undercover agent at a private intelligence firm, is hired to infiltrate the East, an ecoterrorism cell targeting companies that pollute the environment.

A Tigrayan lawyer who lives in Addis Ababa said it was no longer " The City where I was born and where I grew up". Police have been rounding up Tigrayans in raids on homes, cafes and Bars - and even during identity checks in taxis and buses, She Said .

The US, UN and African Union have all been urging talks.
William Davison, senior analyst at The International Crisis Group, thinks it would be in the government's interest to offer concessions - ending constraints on access to aid and restoring vital services to Tigray .
" International actors should also call on the Tigray leadership to show maximum restraint, as not only do they need to give Prime Minster Abiy Ahmed a final chance to change course, but a quick attempt to March On Addis would probably lead to worsening violence and destabilisation for everyone, " he told The Bbc .
