Troops and equipment poured through this once-bustling market town Wednesday as Ethiopian soldiers pushed deep into Eritrea on the sixth day of a massive offensive to end a two-year border conflict. The immediate objective was Barentu, 25 miles north of the border and a command center of Eritrea's army. An Ethiopian government spokesman said the fall of Barentu was imminent. He said the goal was not to hold the town but to secure the territory around the contested border and withdraw.
