A German tourist was shot and killed in northeastern Ethiopia while visiting the Erta Ale volcano, BBC News reported Dec. 5. It remains unclear who conducted the attack and the government is investigating the incident. In 2012, five tourists were killed and four others were abducted in the same area, with the Afar Revolutionary Democratic Unity Front claiming responsibility for the attack. Ethiopia has long been one of the most stable and influential countries in East Africa.
