Ethiopia arrests suspect in US diplomat's death

Ethiopian police arrested a suspect in the death of a 25-year-old American diplomat, officials said Wednesday. Michael McClellan, a spokesman for the US embassy in Addis Ababa, said the suspect had some of the victim's "personal effects," but he did not elaborate. Demsash Hailu, a spokesman for Ethiopia's federal police, said the suspect was arrested Tuesday in the country's remote north. Brian Adkins was found dead in his home earlier this month in the capital, Addis Ababa. He was serving as a consular officer at the US Embassy in Ethiopia.
