ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) – An Ethiopian army official says members of the Islamic State extremist group have been detained in the East African country.

Berhanu Jula, deputy chief of Ethiopia’s military, told the state-owned Ethiopian News Agency on Wednesday that there is evidence the extremist group “has recruited, trained and armed some Ethiopians.”

He did not say how many were arrested and how.

He said other members of the group still at large are being hunted down and warned that the Islamic State group had tried many times in the past to set up base in Ethiopia.

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has recently warned about attempts by the Somalia-based al-Shabab extremists to make inroads into Ethiopia.

Ethiopia’s army has a heavy presence in border areas with Somalia, where al-Shabab mounts regular bomb attacks.

  2. These demons must have sensed that the old country is so divided politically that they think their opportune time has come. We should never make our differences to play into the hands of these heathens. We should learn from the dire straits other so divided countries are in. Once such jinns found a foothold in a divided nation they will wreak havoc beyond imagination and be costly also almost impossible for nations to stamp them out. They should be nipped in the bud. We should also remember those other heathens, the Wahhabis, are right at the gate with their deep pockets to finance these savages. I commend such round ups and I wish General Berhanu bin Julu and his men continued success in identifying and throwing these ghouls into the slammer. Lock them up and throw away the key with no public access
