    Background: Unless a country is free from fear and anxiety to economic development can succeed, Ethiopian President Brigadier-General Teferi Bante told graduating Ethiopian police cadets on Saturday (4 October).

    General Teferi awarded diplomas to 77 graduates before touring the new police college at Sendafa, 40 kilometres (25 miles) north of the capital Addis Ababa.

    He told the graduates that in the past the police had been forced to protect the selfish ends of the former reactionary regime (Emperor Haile Selassie's). The police had nevertheless done all it could to live up to its rightful responsibilities.

    Now a policeman should weight everything from the angle of Ethiopian socialism, General Teferi said. The main aim of Ethiopian socialism was to protect the weak against the strong, the poor against the rich and create a social system based on freedom and equality.

    Two days before the graduation ceremony road blocks were set up on all roads out of Addis Ababa after a bomb caused heavy damage to the city's telecommunications building.

    A government statement blamed the blast on criminals seeking to undermine the unity of the Ethiopian people. It is believed to have been caused by Eritrean rebels who have been held responsible for two other blasts.
