Dr Abiy Ahmed: Speech After Bomb Explosion.

An explosion has killed several people at a large rally by supporters of Ethiopia's new, reformist Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed in the capital, Addis Ababa.

In a televised address shortly after Saturday's blast, Abiy said "a few people" were killed in the what he called a "well-orchestrated attack", offering his condolences to the families of the victims.

An Associated Press news agency reporter saw more than a dozen injured people at the rally. Footage showed Abiy being rushed from the scene by security guards.

One organiser of the rally, Seyoum Teshome, said on Facebook that "Prime Minister Abiy and other guests who came in attendance are all fine."

The state broadcaster quickly cut away from coverage of the rally, which has broken up with people singing, chanting and going back to their homes.

Ambulances were at the scene in the crowded Meskel Square in Addis Ababa where the prime minister had been addressing thousands of supporters.

In a cowboy hat and T-shirt, Abiy addressed the crowd as supporters wore clothes displaying his image and carry signs saying "One Love, One Ethiopia".

The explosion occurred shortly after Abiy finished speaking and was waving to the crowd.
