Asmara says Addis planning to attack

Reuters reported today the Eritrean government as saying it had received intelligence reports that Ethiopia was planning to launch fresh attacks in the border dispute between the two countries and called for a ban on all hostilities. The foreign ministry was quoted as saying in a statement that Western intelligence sources and others had reported the Ethiopian government would launch attacks against Eritrea between mid-January and mid-February from three directions. The latest accusation takes place at the same time as a renewed US attempt to broker a solution to the border dispute between the Horn of Africa nations, led by US envoy Anthony Lake.
