Ethiopia confirms death of its citizens in Uganda terror attack

APA-Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) Ethiopia on Monday confirmed that Ethiopian citizens were among those who died in the deadly Sunday night terrorist attacks in Uganda.

The death toll from the attack is reported to have reached 74.

The Ethiopian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that there were Ethiopians killed in the attack, one of which was carried out in an Ethiopian-owned restaurant in Kampala.

However, the ministry did not disclose any figure, only saying that investigations were being carried out.

According to media reports from Uganda, around 10 Ethiopians were among the dead in the blast, which leaves Uganda in tension after the bloody incident.

“The targets of the cowardly attack, including many Ethiopians were innocent civilians watching the FIFA World Cup final. But this is the nature of terrorism, and this is also why those who choose this method of struggle and their defenders should not be allowed to succeed,” said the Ethiopian Foreign Ministry.

Ugandans, Ethiopians and Americans are reported to have been among those killed in the attack, suspected to be carried out by the Al Shabab militant group of Somalia.
