ADDIS ABABA - The US Embassy in Ethiopia has warned of a possible attack by Somali jihadist group al-Shabaab and urged its nationals to avoid large crowds and hotels and restaurants in an upscale district of the capital Addis Ababa.

The Ethiopian authorities said late last year that its security forces were on heightened alert after receiving strong evidence al-Shabaab was plotting further attacks after a botched suicide bombing in Addis Ababa.

Ethiopian troops, alongside forces from Uganda, Burundi, Kenya and Djibouti, are part of an African Union (AU) mission fighting al-Shabaab inside Somalia. Their presence has been used by the al-Qaida-aligned insurgents as a rallying cry for a holy war against foreign troops on Somali soil.
