Ethiopia arrested 15 suspects on February 3 over a plot to attack the United Arab Emirates Embassy in the nation’s capital, Addis Ababa. An unspecified number of weapons, explosive devices and documents were confiscated from the suspected terrorists.

"The group took the mission from a foreign terrorist group and was preparing to inflict significant damage on properties and human lives," the Ethiopian Press Agency (EPA) reported.

State-affiliated FANA news outlet reported that "Ahmed Ismael, who is the leader of the terrorist group and a resident of Sweden, was arrested in Sweden as a result of exchange of information with European, African and Asian security services."
