UK Ministers Must Use Ethiopia Summit to Free Death-Row Brit

WASHINGTON - The government must use the African Union summit beginning today in Addis Ababa to urge the release of a British man kidnapped to Ethiopia nearly 2 years ago, human rights organization Reprieve has said.

Foreign Office minister James Duddridge is expected to attend the AU's annual summit in the Ethiopian capital today. The AU recently named 2016 the ‘Year of Human Rights in Africa.’
