    Africa "inanufaika" na uwepo wa AFRICOM: Mambo si mabaya. Gogoro jingine hili. Vita nyingine inanukia.

    Ethiopian forces have launched a military assault on positions inside Eritrea, Ethiopian officials have said.

    Ethiopia attacked because Eritrea was training "subversive groups" to carry out attacks inside Ethiopia, a government spokesman said.

    A number of people were killed and others captured when three camps were attacked, a defence official said. Eritrea has not yet commented.

    The two countries fought a border war from 1998 to 2000.

    Despite signing a peace treaty, tensions between the two countries have remained high ever since.

    Masikini Africa inapiganishwa wenyewe kwa wenyewe maana hata vita nyingine haiwahusu lakini inabidi wakubali kuingilia.Sasa mungu ajaalie na huku kwetu tusije kuchonganishwa na jirani yoyote au tuliomo ndani.

    Mungu ibariki Africa,Mungu ibariki Tanzania

    But Mr Ali accused the US of being behind the Ethiopian raid.

    "Not only this attack, the destabalisation of our region is instigated and compounded by the US," he told the BBC's Focus on Africa programme.

    Ethiopia, a close US ally, has also sent forces into Somalia to tackle the al-Qaeda-linked Islamist group, al-Shabab.

    Eritrea has said it will not retaliate after Ethiopia's cross-border raid on Thursday, easing fears of a new conflict between the long-time rivals.
    "Those who rush to aggression are those who do not know what the life of people means," Eritrean Information Minister Ali Abdu told the BBC
