U.S. Military Stops Launching Drones From Ethiopia, Embassy Says

The U.S. military has stopped flying drones from the southern Ethiopian town of Arba Minch, which they had used since 2011, a spokesman for the U.S. Embassy in Ethiopia said.

The two countries agreed that a U.S. presence in Arba Minch isn’t needed at the moment, the spokesman, David Kennedy, said in an e-mail on Saturday.

Ethiopia borders Somalia, whose government is battling Al Qaeda-aligned Islamic militants Al Shabaab with the support of the international community.
