Meles Zenawi behind the attack of Europeans in Afar

Meles Zenawi planned the attacks of Europeans in Afar - Ethiopian Professor

Monday's attack that left five European tourists dead in Ethiopia's Afar region is said to be the work of Ethiopian despot Meles Zenawi, according to an Ethiopian professor residing in Addis Ababa.

The attack, which left two Germans, two Hungarians and an Austrian dead, took place in a remote and isolated Afar region known for banditry.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the professor highlighted the motives behind the brazen attack is to politically isolate Eritrea from the upcoming African Union summit in Addis Ababa and to instigate European nations to take unilateral action against its arch-foe neighbor.

"This tragic incident has Meles Zenawi's trademark written all over it. Instead of the government giving out condolences to the families, and taking normal protocols to investigate it properly, it was quick to blame Eritrea in a disturbing choreographed sequence," the professor said.

He went on to add, "European officials effected by this tragedy should seriously consider investigating the Ethiopian government for possibly orchestrating this henious attack. Similar past attacks on Ethiopian citizens in Addis Ababa, which were not suprisingly quickly blamed on Eritrea, were proven to be the works of Zenawi's regime by US government officials."

Addis Ababa routinely blames Eritrea for its numerous domestic disturbances. Previous allegations of Eritrea being behind a serious of attacks and bombings in Ethiopia were later found to be the work of Zenawi's security forces, according to recently leaked investigative reports conducted by US officials.
