Ethiopian Prime Minister Dies in Brussels Hospital: Death of Meles Zenawi, 57

After weeks of absence, Ethiopia announced the death of long-serving Prime Minister Meles Zenawi after he succumbed to an undisclosed illness. The 57-year-old Meles, seen by the opposition as an autocratic leader who tolerated no dissent but regarded by the West as a bulwark against Islamic militancy, died on late on Monday in a Brussels hospital, officials said. Speculation that Meles was seriously ill arose after he failed to attend an African Union summit last month.
