An apparently accidental hand-grenade explosion wounded 33 people, nine seriously, on Thursday at the central bus station in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, police said.

“This does not appear to be a terrorist attack. It seems a passenger was carrying the grenade in their luggage and it detonated accidentally,” federal police commander Demash Hailu told Reuters.

In the past, Ethiopia has accused arch-foe Eritrea of backing rebels who have bombed civilian targets in Addis Ababa.

Blasts at two petrol stations killed two people a day after local, regional and federal elections in April 2008, then a bomb tore through a minibus taxi a month later, killing six.

    Mama Weyanne,
    Leave Birtukan the hero alone!
    She has shown you and your dictatorial masters what peaceful struggle for democracy is all about. In fact she has shown a world class in resistance the evil Your and your master’s duty remains to immediately and without pre condition release her and all political prisoners from the “Guantanamo” of Ethiopia! By the way have you heard that “Guantanamo” prison will soon be closed?
    የወያነ ጉድ ተከፈተ!!
