Thousands join Ethiopia-Eritrea peace run

Thousands of Ethiopians and Eritreans take part in a 10-kilometre reconciliation run, the first joint sporting event since the former bitter foes launched a rapid diplomatic thaw in July. The two countries fought a war from 1998-2000 that left an estimated 80,000 people dead on both sides; the peace run through the Ethiopian capital is capturing the new positive mood after years of “cold war”.
