Kulibi a target?

This could be a heinous act with serious repercussions, or simply an erroneous report by a supposed source in the "Ethiopian opposition," which nowadays could mean anyone.

Kulibi, or more specifically St Gabriel's Church, 68 km from Dire Dawa in the East of Ethiopia, could be a target for bomb attacks by ethnic Somali Ethiopian opponents. According to a source in the Ethiopian opposition, groups supported by Eritrea have brought explosives into Addis Ababa and Dire Dawa via Djibouti. Somali extremists could use this material to make explosions in the Ethiopian capital and could even target St Gabriel's Church where an annual pilgrimage is held on 28 December.
