LOUISE Redknapp has admitted she feels judged by “clipboard mums” on the school run because she left Jamie. The singer says she felt “really uncomfortable” that fellow parents were looking down on her and found the daily experience “stressful”. Louise , 46, said: "There have been times when I have felt really uncomfortable at the school gates, as though some of the other mums are looking down on me or judging me.

But there are fears many more could be trapped in villages. "These [cases] are only those who have access to this hospital, but we don't know what happens in the 18 districts in the Eastern [Tigray] zone - what happens to the mothers, what … [Read more...] about Anger and collective trauma scar Ethiopia’s Tigray region
