Ethiopian police say grenades defused in capital

Devices were found and defused after members of the public alerted police, who blamed "anti-peace elements" for planting them, the Ethiopian News Agency (ENA) reported.

"The anti-peace forces are creating chaos and disturbances in schools, disguising themselves as students," ENA quoted the statement as saying.

The term "anti-peace forces" is often used by the government to refer to members of the main opposition political party, the Coalition for United and Democracy (CUDP), which claims elections last year were rigged.

Nearly all the CUDP leadership are among a group of 131 opposition supporters, journalists and others facing treason and other charges after being accused of fomenting a coup d’etat through protests against the May 15 polls.
