Tigray leader calls on Ethiopia PM to withdraw troops; China and Australia clash over graphic tweet

Despite Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed's declaration of victory two days ago, the defiant leader of Tigray, Debretsion Gebremichael, said fighting continues on all fronts and called on Abiy to withdraw troops from the region.

CBS News foreign correspondent Debora Patta joined "CBSN AM" from Johannesburg with a look at these global headlines.
