Ethiopia denies re-entering Somalia

Ethiopia denied on Tuesday that its troops had re-entered Somalia to counter the Islamist group al Shabaab.

"This is absolutely false. The army is within the Ethiopian border. There is no intention to go back," minister and chief government spokesman Bereket Simon told Reuters.

He described the version of an Ethiopian incursion, given by locals in the area, as a "wicked" attempt to detract from positive developments in Somalia
