FBI arrives in Ethiopia to help probe blast

FBI investigators have arrived in Ethiopia to help with the inquiry into last Saturday’s attack on a huge political rally in the capital, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia’s Federal Police Commissioner General Zeynu Jemal has told me.

A total of 28 suspects were now in custody, he added.

The deadly explosion occurred just after Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed had finished addressing the rally in Addis Ababa, which was called to show support for the reforms he has introduced since taking office in April.
