Rockets fired from Ethiopia have hit the capital of neighbouring Eritrea, diplomats and witnesses said, as the deadly fighting between Ethiopian government troops and rebellious forces in the northern Tigray region appeared to spill across international borders.At least three rockets were fired at Asmara on Saturday evening, five diplomats told the Reuters news agency.

At least two of them hit the city’s airport, three diplomats said.Radio Erena, a Paris-based diaspora station sympathetic to the Eritrean opposition, said Asmara residents reported hearing “four explosions in total”.
