Gunmen kill nine in western Ethiopia near the Great Dam

Gunmen kill nine in western Ethiopia - Updated News: "Gunmen ambushed a bus carrying dozens of people in western Ethiopia near the Sudanese border, killing nine and wounding six others, state-run media said on Wednesday.

There was no claim of responsibility and no group was blamed for the attack, but Ethiopia says it has thwarted several plots in recent years by Ethiopian insurgents as well as Somali al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab Islamist militants.

“The bus was targeted while travelling 100 kilometers south of (regional capital) Assosa,” a report on state-owned Ethiopian Television said.

No further details were given, and officials were not immediately available to comment."
