Ethiopian security forces have foiled a plot by Somali militant Al-Shabaab group to launch terrorist attacks in the capital Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian television announced on Tuesday.

An anti-terror unit said in a statement that a bomber had been arrested while trying to detonate a bomb.

The statement said that Al-Shabaab group had planned to carry out "several terrorist attacks" within a week in the capital Addis Ababa.

Al-Shabaab has launched an insurgency against the central government in Somalia.

The Qaeda-linked group, which controls several towns in southern and central Somalia, has lost ground to government troops and African peacekeepers in recent weeks.
