Ethiopia: Four Ethiopians and one Pakistani killed and five Pakistani wounded on a farm owned by Al-Amoudi in Gambela

An official says gunmen attacked a commercial farm in Ethiopia’s western Gambella region and killed five workers.

Government spokesman Shimeles Kemal said Sunday that the attackers wounded nine people as they shot indiscriminately late Saturday at workers on the vast farm. The property is owned by Mohammed Al-Amoudi, an Ethiopian-born Saudi businessman who is among the world’s richest men.
