German tourist shot dead in Ethiopia

A German tourist has been killed and a guide wounded in an attack in north-eastern Ethiopia, near the border with Eritrea.

Reports say the German national was in a group of tourists who were visiting the Erta Ale volcano – a popular destination for holidaymakers – when he was shot and killed.

It is not clear who carried out the attack.
The Ethiopian government says it is investigating the killing.

Local authorities say security forces have now been deployed to the area, where an armed separatist group operates.

In 2012, five tourists were killed and four others abducted after gunmen ambushed them in the area. The Afar Revolutionary Democratic Front claimed responsibility for that attack.
