A key crossing point between one-time bitter enemies Ethiopia and Eritrea has reopened after a border war shut it more than 20 years ago.
The leaders of the two countries witnessed the reopening at Burre, as part of their ongoing rapprochement.
This will give landlocked Ethiopia access to the port of Assab.
Another border post, near the Ethiopian town of Zalambessa and on the main road linking the two countries, is also set to reopen.
This follows a peace deal signed by Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki in July restoring diplomatic and trade relations.
The reopening coincides with the Ethiopian New Year, adding to the festive atmosphere.
The war, fought over the exact location of the boundary between Ethiopia and Eritrea, began in May 1998 and left tens of thousands of people dead.
