US warns possible terror attack in Ethiopia


The US Embassy in Addis Ababa urged American citizens residing or traveling to Ethiopia to exercise caution over a possible attack by a Somali terrorist group. The safety advisory the embassy said was issued due to threat from Al-Shabaab against Ethiopia and western interests in Ethiopia. Citing to multiple and ongoing credible threats, the US embassy urged its citizens to take the highest precautions to maintain their personal safety and security. “The Embassy continues to receive credible threat reports of Al-Shabaab’s intent and capability to attack Ethiopia and western interests in Ethiopia” it said in a statement Sudan Tribunereceived on Sunday. The embassy said that there have been a number of incursions along the Ethiopian-Somali border in recent weeks urging its citizens to maintain a high level of vigilance and to take appropriate steps to enhance personal security. “While there is no known specific information regarding the timing or location of an attack, we would like to remind U.S. citizens to be especially vigilant in areas where large numbers of US and western citizens congregate, including restaurants, hotels, bars, places of worship, supermarkets, and shopping malls” the statement said. The embassy highly recommended for Americans living in Ethiopia and those travelling to Ethiopia to enrol in the Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). “The STEP enrollment gives you the latest security updates, and makes it easier for the U.S. embassy or nearest U.S. consulate to contact you in an emergency. If you don’t have Internet access, enrol directly with the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate” it added. Ethiopia, which is a regional security partner of the United States government, has a deployed forces in war torn Somalia to help the weak government battle the Al-Qaeda-allied Al-Shabaab group. In the past Al-Shabaab has repeatedly warned to carryout massive attacks in Ethiopia in retaliation for its military intervention and Addis Ababa takes such threats seriously. However government officials often disclose that the country’s defence force and intelligence are capable enough to thwart Shabaab’s terror plots and to defend the country from any external enemy. Addis Ababa says it will remain determined to keep its troops in Somalia till order, peace and security is fully restored in Somalia. However Ethiopian opposition politicians on the contrary call on government for immediate pull-out arguing keeping the troops longer will increase the risk of retaliation attacks against the horn of Africa’s nation.  Source: (Sudan tribune)

  1. Dear Uni+Multi versal Divine beings in Diversity!

    We at Uni and Multi-Versal Diving Living in Diversity believe that our diversity is being challenged by homogeneous one percent geriatric males of the global population who want to destroy our Divinity in Serving others in Diversity, especially the Divine Females (51% and 75% youths of the world.

    The reality of our poor planet is that we have less than one percent of the global population - the Geriatric male terrorist network of religious, business. military and political complex bent on terrorizing the rest of us.

    These terrorists by and large are none other than geriatric fools who have organized themselves under religious, political, military and business enterprises and would never rest unless they sell their guns, junk products and most importantly sick ideology and religion of terror.

    Ninety nine percent of the global population have to choose how to deal with them!

    How does the Peace and Green Movement handle the impending terror in Addis and Ethiopia?

    We recommend eternal vigilance of one on one, one to five where we monitor these bad actors of less than one percent of any one community around the world.

    The real question is how do we deal with these terrorists on a day to day basis?

    Does the Greenpeace Renaissance Movement has anything to contribute?

    Please read on the latest US caution on terror networks in the Horn, most of them supported by the sane looking religious and diplomatic goons posing as civilized but promoting terror!

    The history of the early 1970s of Red and White Terror and their current offsprings posing as activists of terror is a serious issue to be addressed by the new generation of Africans and African Union!

    The youths and females who make up the majority of the global community have to stop all the overt and covert terrorist networks that are posing as a serious security and peace challenge to our future. The news about the terror networks targeting Ethiopia below is a case in point.


    I look forward to your alternative perspective of this 2014 Summer of Terror Threats?
