toronto – Four people, including a Spanish tourist, murdered in southern Ethiopia. The incident occurred in Mago National Park.

DW Amharic cited park officials to report that the murder occurred in the northern part of the park, in the jungle.

Adebo Melese, director of the park, told the source that it all started when gunmen killed a driver who was believed to be from the Arie ethnic group and who worked for the park. It triggered an exchange of gunfire between the Arie and Mursi ethnic groups.

The victims lost their lives during an exchange of gunfire.

The Spanish Tourist was a photographer. The head of peace and security for the Arie area, Matado Berbi, confirmed to DW Amharic that he died after being shot. At that time, a total of eleven foreign tourists were in the park. The Spanish photographer died during an exchange of gunfire. And according to the report, it does not appear that this was a targeted assassination. DW Amharic cited Spanish news sources to report that the murdered photographer is identified as Tony Espadas. The source also said that the embassy in Addis Ababa did not confirm and recommended the source contact the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The other ten tourists were unharmed and arrived safely in Jinka city, the report added.

Three of the murdered victims are Ethiopians and were buried on Tuesday. The body of the Spanish tourist was flown to Addis Addis Ababa.

The security situation in the park has reportedly returned to normal.
