ADDIS ABABA, Feb 5 (Reuters) - A U.S. diplomat was found dead at his home in Addis Ababa, the U.S. embassy said on Thursday, and police have launched a criminal investigation.
A diplomatic source in the Ethiopian capital said the 25-year-old man worked in the embassy’s consulate department and had apparently been murdered. His body was found on Monday.
A U.S. embassy spokesman said police had launched a criminal investigation. A local police spokesman said it was too early to give any details. (Reporting by Barry Malone and Tsegaye Tadesse; Editing by Daniel Wallis)
