Police in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa have said three individuals have been killed after a shoot-out with members of the armed group Fano.

One of those killed was a civilian while the other two were members of the group, according a statement released by police. Two police officers were injured.

The incident took place on Friday morning in an affluent neighbourhood near the city’s airport.

The armed group Fano largely operates in the country’s restive Amhara region where it has been battling the army since August last year.

This is the first violent incident reported in Addis Ababa in connection with the Fano rebellion.
