ADDIS ABABA - Ten men were found guilty by an Ethiopian court on Tuesday of plotting attacks against political and economic targets in the Horn of Africa country with the help of Islamist militants from neighboring Somalia.

Ethiopia waged an ill-fated war in Somalia in 2006-2009 and sent troops back in 2011 to fight the al Qaida-allied al Shabaab group, opening a third front alongside Kenyan troops and an African Union mission.

It has long been seen by the West as a bulwark against radical Islam in east Africa, and there have been no attacks linked to al Shabaab in the past few years.
