  • Description

    Two big explosions rocked a hotel and the City Hall in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, on Monday (2 December), injuring 13 people.

    But despite the extent of the damage, no-one was killed.

    Six people were inured at the City Hall and seven at the Wabe Shebelle Hotel, owned by the Royal Family until it was nationalised when Emperor Haile Selassie was deposed in September.

    The military government blamed the explosion on the followers of the 60 former civilian and military officials who were executed nine days ago.

    However, police sources said the explosions could be connected with the secessionists of the Eritrean Liberation Front. (ELF).
