Recently released Wikileaks Ethiopia files expose how Ethiopian security forces planted 3 bombs that went off in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa on September 16, 2006 and then blamed Eritrea and the Oromo resistance for the blasts in a case that raises serious questions about the claims made about the bombing attempt against the African Union summit earlier this year in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

In a report from 2006 marked “Secret ; Subject: Ethiopia: Recent Bombings Blamed on Oromos Possibly the Work of GOE [Government of Ethiopia]…by: Charge [d’Affairs] Vicki Huddleston”, “An embassy source, as well as clandestine reporting, suggests that the bombing may have in fact been the work of the GoE security forces.” Cable reference id: #06ADDISABABA2708 Continue reading

By IRIN,

Authorities in Somalia’s self-declared independent Republic of Somaliland have given a month’s notice to an estimated 80,000 illegal immigrants – mostly Ethiopian – to leave the region.

Those who do not leave will face legal charges and be deported.” Continue reading

Al-Shabaab Sponsored Ugandan Bombers Pleaded Guilty

The two Ugandans that bombed Kampala and kill 76 people, including 5 Eritreans on behalf of Al-Shabaab, admits their role

By New Vision,

A Ugandan national, Edris Nsubuga, the man who triggered off the deadly bomb blast at Kyaddondo Rugby Club in Kampala on July 11, 2010, yesterday pleaded guilty to terrorism charges.

Nsubuga and another suspect, Mohamoud Mugisha stunned court when they unexpectedly pleaded guilty to participating in the deadly July Kampala bombings. When he was paraded before the press in August last year, Nsubuga confessed to having triggered off the deadly explosion. On his part Mugisha said he identified a house that was used by the terrorists.

My Lord, I have now decided to change my plea of not guilty to guilty on the three counts of terrorism,” Nsubuga told Justice Alfonse Owiny-Dollo yesterday. Continue reading
