ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) - Ethiopia says a delegation from longtime rival Eritrea is visiting this week for the first time in two decades after surprising gestures by both sides aimed at ending one of Africa's longest-running conflicts.
Ethiopia's foreign ministry gives no details on the expected visit. The two countries broke off diplomatic relations when a two-year border war began in 1998 and killed tens of thousands. The East African nations have skirmished a number of times since then.
