ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - Twenty suspects, including the deputy head of Addis Ababa's police commission, appeared on Monday in a court in the Ethiopian capital in connection with a grenade attack at a rally attended by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, the state-affiliated FANA broadcasting company reported.

It did not give further details. The attack, which killed two people and wounded scores, took place on Saturday moments after Abiy had finished a speech in Meskel Square in the centre of Addis Ababa.
