Impose a truce

Britain and other countries in the first world are well-placed to exert some other kind of healing influence upon [Ethiopia].

Food meanwhile reaches dissident areas in Tigre and Eritrea through charities -- particularly from ``War on Want'' which is heavily involved there. East and West together, especially at a time of improving relations, should come together in the Horn, to impose a truce upon a country which is tearing itself apart while people starve.
