    Ethiopia says armed men have killed 140 people near its border with South Sudan and abducted at least 39 children.

    Ethiopia's Communications Minister said the attackers were members of Sudan's Murle tribe. He said security forces were chasing the attackers and had killed 60 so far.

    Mr Reda told the BBC the attackers were not thought to have any links to the South Sudanese government or rebels. Ethiopia's Gambella province, where the raid took place, has a history of conflict between communities.

    The Murle have previously been accused of carrying out cattle raids and stealing children to raise as their own.
