The explosion occurred Thursday in the eastern Ethiopia town of Jijiga at the home of an Ethiopian family mourning the death of their relative in a rebel attack earlier this week, said Zemedkun Tekle, the government spokesman. "The terrorists who have done the massacre have done this. This horrible incident has been committed by the ONLF (Ogaden National Liberation Front)," Zemedkun told The Associated Press.
