(AP)-The United States issued a warning Thursday to its citizens about travelling to a popular tourist region in Ethiopia after a string of grenade attacks targeting hotels and homes.
The US embassy in Addis Ababa said there had been four grenade blasts this month in Gondar, a city in the north known for its ancient castles.
A popular stop on Ethiopia’s tourist circuit, Gondar was also the scene of anti-government protests last year that led to the declaration of a nationwide state of emergency.
“The embassy recommends US citizens carefully consider whether travel to Gondar is necessary at this time,” the embassy said in a statement.
A spokesman for Ethiopia’s government had no immediate comment.
