Somalia’s president condemns ‘senseless’ Ethiopia blast

Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed has condemned a grenade attack at a large rally in Addis Ababa in which at least one person was killed.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Dr Abiy Ahmed attended the rally at Meskel square and was evacuated from the venue where he addressed supporters, moments after an explosion went off.

The Somali president said that he was “saddened by the senseless attack on the innocent victims in Addis Ababa”.

“These acts by a few cowards would not deter progress in Ethiopia,” a statement on his official Twitter account said.

The Somali leader said he spoke on the phone with Dr Abiy, adding that his “thoughts and prayers” were with the Ethiopian people.

The president of neighbouring Djibouti has also condemned the blast.

There has been no claim of responsibility for the explosion.
