A bomb thrown into a hotel in Gondar town has killed a government employee and injured 19 people, according to media report. Spokesman for the regional authorities, Nigusu Tilahun, said on Wednesday that the bomb was thrown into Entasal hotel in the town of Gondar, late on Tuesday. He also disclosed that three of the injured were in serious condition. Tilahun said police were trying to track down the bombers, whose identity was not known, but who, he said, were likely to have been “anti-peace elements.” Another bomb had exploded in Amhara capital, Bahir Dar’s Grand Resort Hotel, on January 4, but no injuries were reported.
