Ethiopia’s health minister says a second person has died after Saturday’s explosion at a massive rally in the capital for the new prime minister. Health Minister Amir Aman says on Twitter that the person died at a local hospital in intensive care.
Witnesses say a man in the crowd tried to throw a grenade at Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed but was restrained by people around him. Tens of thousands had gathered to cheer a wave of reforms under the young leader, who took office in April.
The ruling party has blamed “desperate anti-peace elements” for the attack.
