Facebook says it has removed a post by Ethiopia’s Prime Minister that urged citizens to rise up and “bury” the rival Tigray forces who now threaten the capital as the country’s war reaches the one-year mark.

"The obligation to die for Ethiopia belongs to all of us,” Mr. Abiy said in the now-deleted post that called on citizens to mobilize “by holding any weapon or capacity.” Mr. Abiy is still regularly posting on the platform, where he has 3.5 million followers.
