Ethiopia blast impacts US Embassy home

Nairobi - Officials say a weekend explosion in Ethiopia's capital that killed two people impacted a home used by US Embassy personnel.
Ethiopia's state TV says the identities of those killed in the Sunday blast are not known. The government also has not said what caused the blast. The area hosts a large Somali population.
An FBI document obtained by The Associated Press says the blast "impacted the wall of a US employee residence".
Kenya last month saw the Somali militant group al-Shabaab kill 67 people during a siege on a Nairobi shopping mall. Al-Shabaab in 2010 detonated bombs in Uganda's capital during the World Cup final, killing more than 70 people.
Al-Shabaab said those attacks were retaliation because Kenya and Uganda have troops in Somalia. Ethiopia also has troops in Somalia.
