April 5 (Reuters) - U.S. State Department spokesman Ned Price said on Monday the United States was "gravely concerned" about violence in Ethiopia's Tigray region and was looking into reports of massacres there.

Price welcomed statements that Eritrean troops would withdraw from Tigray and said a withdrawal would be an important step forward in de-escalation in the region. (Reporting by Humeyra Pamuk and Simon Lewis Editing by Chris Reese)
