MOGADISHU - Somalia's Islamist rebels threatened yesterday to attack Ethiopia after repeated witness reports that Ethiopian troops were back in the country they withdrew from in January.
Ethiopian troops invaded Somalia in 2006 to oust an Islamist movement from the capital in which new President Sheik Sharif Ahmed played a role.
That sparked an Islamist insurgency that is still raging despite their withdrawal.
Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi said last week possible suicide attacks in Ethiopia by Somali Islamist rebels were a threat he "didn't expect to go away soon".
Witnesses say columns of Ethiopian troops have crossed the border and are in Somalia. The Ethiopian government has denied that. - Reuters
