Ethiopian rebels said Sunday they have killed 140 Ethiopian soldiers in the country's southeast. About 1,000 fighters of the Ogaden National Liberation Front attacked Ethiopian troops on Saturday in a southeastern area of Wardher, about 780 kilometers southeast of the capital, Addis Ababa, the group said in a statement e-mailed to The Associated Press. Government officials were not immediately available for comment. It was not possible to independently verify the rebel claims because the area where the attack took place is remote.
