Eye witnesses reveal, last Wednesday night a bomb blasted in front of Bahir Dar Grand Hotel. Until this news went to print, it was not reported if there were sustained human or property damages. No one has claimed the responsibility nor has indicated the reason regarding the bomb that blasted at 8 PM local time. Nevertheless, it is to be reminded leaflets opposing the staging of the music festival last Sunday were distributed.

Last week, another leaflet entitled, “Let’s not make mothers not to cry, be sorry nor curse this generation” was distributed. The distributed fliers included, we strongly oppose the staging of the music festival while the blood of our sisters and brothers are still fresh. It is not known if the leaders of this group are directly associated with the bomb blast.

It is revealed, the regime’s officials were present at the hotel during the bomb blast. It is a public knowledge that the owner of the hotel, Mrs. Tiliksew Gedamu, has very close association with Amhara National Democratic Movement (ANDM) and Tigrians People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).

In our recent report, we indicated a 38 year old; father of 4, Ismael Ahmed was assassinated in front of his house by command post officials last Tuesday. It is also to be reminded; all Tigrians had an exclusive meeting last Saturday and Sunday and was warned to be extra vigilant when living in Bahir Dar.
