Gunmen killed in Addis Ababa

Ethiopia said yesterday that its security forces shot dead three gunmen on the run since their failed attempt to assassinate the Egyptian President, Hosni Mubarak. State-run Ethiopian television said the shoot- out, in which two Ethiopian security men were wounded, took place in an Addis Ababa suburb and that all three of the dead were of Arab origin.

Meanwhile Egyptian investigators claimed that three Ethiopian security officials took part in the failed assassination attempt, and that Sudanese intelligence helped plan the attack.
