Deadly blast in Ethiopia's capital impacts US Embassy home; 2 dead, no American casualties
Reported by: Associated Press

Officials say a weekend explosion in Ethiopia's capital that killed two people impacted a home used by U.S. Embassy personnel.
An FBI document obtained by The Associated Press says the blast "impacted the wall of a U.S. employee residence."
Kenya last month saw the Somali militant group al-Shabab kill 67 people during a siege on a Nairobi shopping mall. Al-Shabab in 2010 detonated bombs in Uganda's capital during the World Cup final, killing more than 70 people.
Al-Shabab said those attacks were retaliation because Kenya and Uganda have troops in Somalia. Ethiopia also has troops in Somalia.
