Gallantly shall he speak and gifts bring

One person was killed and scores of others injured Saturday in a blast at a political rally in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa, Ethiopian officials said.

Ethiopia's new reformist prime minister, Abiy Ahmed, had just finished a speech at the rally in the capital when a grenade exploded.

The state broadcaster quickly cut away as Abiy was rushed off the stage at Meskel Square where thousands had gathered to hear the young politician who was dressed in a cowboy hat and a T-shirt.

Abiy said the explosion was a "well orchestrated attack" and that police were investigating who were responsible.

"Love always wins. Killing others is a defeat," Abiy said in a televised interview after the blast. "To those who tried to divide us, I want to tell you that you have not succeeded."
