ADDIS ABABA - Four people, including two foreign tourists were kidnapped by gunmen who killed five foreigners in Ethiopia's Afar region, a government spokesman said on Wednesday.

"The attack occurred at 5 a.m. on Tuesday, in which Eritrean-trained groups also kidnapped four. Two of them are foreigners, one is a driver and the other a policeman," Bereket Simon told Reuters.

Eritrea has rejected the accusation that it trained and armed the gunmen responsible for the attack. Those killed in the attack include German nationals.
