The US State Division says six explosions within the Eritrean capital, Asmara

ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) – Six explosions were reported late Saturday in the Eritrean capital, Asmara, the U.S. State Department said on Twitter, although the cause and location were not clear.

"On November 28 at 10:13 pm there were six explosions in Asmara," the Foreign Ministry said in the post on Sunday.

Tigrayan forces fighting Ethiopian soldiers previously fired rockets at Eritrea, and the post urged Americans "to be situationally aware of the ongoing conflict in the Tigray region of Ethiopia".

Reuters was not able to immediately reach the Eritrean government or the Tigrayan armed forces for comment.

On Saturday, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed announced that federal forces had taken control of Mekelle, Tigray's capital, within hours of the start of an offensive.

The Tigrayan People & # 39; s Liberation Front (TPLF), a political party whose fight against the government began on November 4, said it was pulling out of Mekelle. The TPLF views Eritrea, which has close ties to Abiy, as an archenemy.
