"He was a Tigrayan and, of course, as a Tigrayan during this time, you are a target. So all you can do is hide your identity or you will be killed," Ahlam "Lala" Mohammed, a 21-year-old university student from Washington, D.C. told reporter David Volodzko. The Tigray National Regional State, a place you may have never even heard of, is currently encircled by Ethiopian and Eritrean forces. Internet is shut down, sources are threatened, and Tigrinya is difficult to translate, leaving the crisis largely absent from Western media. This week, Volodzko explained the problem for readers of The Nation.
