Ethiopia defeated Botswana 1-0

Ethiopia stayed top of Group A in their Brazil 2014 World Cup qualifiers after collecting the three points off the visiting Botswana on Sunday. The Walias left it until late in the game to beat Botswana 1-0 in Addis Ababa.Ethiopia broke Botswana's hearts in the 88th minute when striker Getaneh Kebede beat Kabelo Dambe to hand the hosts the three points. Kebede had only been on the pitch for 42 minutes before his goal after replacing midfielder Adane Girma in the 46th minute. Meanwhile, victory left Ethiopia still unbeaten in Group A from three games and to collect their second home win in the race to Brazil. Ethiopia remains unbeaten in Group A on seven points from three games, two more than Bafana Bafana, are second on five points following their 2-0 win over Central Africa Republic just 24 hours earlier in Cape Town. CAR are third on three points from as many games played. Meanwhile, Botswana stay rooted at the bottom of Group A with one point from three matches ahead of the reverse fixture against Ethiopia on June 6 in Gaborone. Victory in Botswana in June for Ethiopia will surely end The Zebra's interest in the race to potentially turn Group A into a two horse race with Bafana Bafana ahead of their penultimate meeting on June 14 in Addis Ababa.  Source ( Super Sport )

Ethiopia Arrests Four Al-Qaeda Allied Suspects

Ethiopian security forces have arrested four members of the Al-Qaeda allied Somalian Islamist extremist group, al-Shabaab. According to the National Security and Intelligence Agency, the militants were arrested on Friday in Moyale town near the border with Somalia.The suspects are accused of plotting terrorist attacks in Ethiopia’s Somali region under the assignment of al-Shabaab An Ethiopian police source told Sudan Tribune that the suspects were planning to attack and kidnap foreign aid workers from a camp for Somali refugees  Ethiopia has been a target of attacks by al-Shabaab militants in retaliation for its military intervention in neighbouring Somalia Ethiopia sent its troops to strife-torn Somalia in 2006 to help the weakened Somali government oust the Union of Islamic Courts (UIC) and to battle al-Shabaab who at the time were in control of most parts of the country. The Horn of Africa nation has been #the victim of a series of terrorist attacks in the past seven years. Addis Ababa has repeatedly blamed its arch-rival Eritrea for the attacks on its soil, an allegation Asmara has always denied. Ethiopia and Eritrea fought a bitter border war from 1998-2000 that killed over 70,000 people, with the two neighbours routinely trading accusations of helping rebels to destabilise their respective countries. In January, Ethiopian security forces similarly arrested 15 members of an al-Qaeda affiliated East African terrorist cell. Government officials said that the terror suspects - who were in possession of weapons - had been trained by al-Shabaab forces in Kenya and Somalia in order to carry out terrorist attacks.
