Gunmen in Ethiopian oil attack wearing Eritrean uniforms

Rebel gunmen who attacked an oil field in Ethiopia, killing nine Chinese and 65 Ethiopian workers, were wearing Eritrean military uniforms, an official said Wednesday.

"They were wearing Eritrean military uniforms," Abdullahi Hassan, president of the region in Ethiopia in which the attack occurred told the Associated Press. "We are sure. They were speaking the Eritrean language."
