ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia – An Ethiopian official says a blast at the biggest mosque in the capital, Addis Ababa, has wounded ten people.

Information Minister Getachew Reda said Friday they are not sure who is responsible for the grenade attack at the Grand Anwar Mosque.

Despite deploying troops to Somalia to fight the al-Qaida-linked militant group al-Shabab, Ethiopia has largely avoided retaliatory extremist attacks from the militants.

Al-Shabab has previously targeted Kenya, Uganda and Djibouti who have also deployed troops to Somalia under the banner of the African Union to bolster the country’s weak U.N.-backed government from an insurgency by the militants.

    Now this is a no no. It should be condemned whoever did it. That country has been calm almost free of wanton violence by extremists for generations especially in urban areas against innocent civilians. I read a lot of blaming going around in here but it should be condemned in the strongest terms. Whoever carried out such barbaric act should be arraigned in an international court. This is very upsetting now, very upsetting. Nobody should be proud of this savage act; nobody should condone it!!!!

    The monster reptile is fatally injured on the head is now wriggling on the lands it had stolen when it came into Ethiopia via invasion, in 1991. The Fascist Woyanae is barbaric and has been committing barbaric crimes. Well, it must have been the savagery work of the Fascist Woyane.

    JIrafe erasu gerfo erasu yaleksal.
    The bomb is the weyane job not any religion of Ethiopians
    we have to very carefull any violence against any ethnic group
    the government is gone collaps soon,no tigre,no amhara, no oromo
    every tribs should be vigilant one another we never had ethnic conflict
    when derg collaps thee were no any army so the people was very calm
    ethnic clash started in some area because of weyane divide and rule when it began,

    what weyane did he created hate b/n oromo and amhara and at the same time
    looking if oromo start attacking amhara because its excuse to take any action by saying we are defending the nation.

    its well calculated when ethnic busy one another they do what ever they want today we talking about burau hundered and thousand of people became homeless in addis removing them from their homes because they are building condeminum not the people who own the place get the condeminum.

    you keep blaming Eritrea for any hate you creating in Ethiopia.

    one love one country
