this is the voa special english development report.

on april twenty-fourth, rebels in eastern ethiopia attacked a chinese-owned oil exploration field in the ogaden area. they killed sixty-five ethiopians workers and nine chinese. seven other chinese were kidnapped but released. the ogaden national liberation front took responsibility.

the group said china did not appear to recognize the struggles of the somali people of ogaden. the rebels have been fighting the ethiopian government for more than twenty years. they urged china to cease all cooperation with the government in the area of oil exploration.
