Battle in the Horn Tuesday, 16 May, 2000, 12:59 GMT 13:59 UK
Eritrea and Ethiopia at war
The war between the two Horn of Africa neighbours and former comrades-in-arms has been one of the most bloody and under-reported on the continent. BBC News Online's special coverage includes in-depth analysis and first-hand reports from the front lines:

Successive diplomatic missions have failed to resolve a fundamental difference in how Ethiopia and Eritrea view what land is rightfully theirs.

  • Fear and farming on the front
  • Meeting the 'liberator of Badme'
  • Tea as the shells fall

    The Badme border
    Loosely-worded treaties, contradictory maps and unwritten agreements make drawing a line between Ethiopia and Eritrea far from easy.


    A refugee's story
    The war between Ethiopia and Eritrea has driven people from their homes on both sides of the disputed border.
