An outlawed Ethiopian rebel group said on Tuesday the death of Prime Minister Meles Zenawi could usher in a new era of peace in Ethiopia, but reaffirmed its readiness to fight for self-determination.

"The death of the Ethiopian dictator may usher a new era of stability and peace in Ethiopia and in the Horn as a whole," a statement by the Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF), said.

"ONLF will also work with any progressive open-minded opposition forces who are ready to recognise the rights for self-determination for all nations and nationalities," it said.

Meles no obstacle to peace in the Ogaden region
I don't think Meles Zenawi is an obstacle to peace in the Ogaden region. If the ONLF think that his death opens up any opportunity to exploit, that would not happen. I would also like to say that those who support the ONLF and expect any scarp will benefit more in sustainable peace and development of the Ethiopian Nation. The sooner they realize this truth the better
