Ethiopia said Thursday it had arrested its former deputy intelligence chief as Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed's administration pursues a crackdown on security officials over human rights abuses and corruption.Since Monday more than 60 officials, some from the intelligence services and some from the military-run industrial conglomerate METEC, have been arrested. Yared was appointed head of the federal police in April but resigned three months later.Tsegaye has said evidence showed "the senior leadership of the national security agency" had instructed members of Abiy's Oromo ethnic group to attack him at a rally in June, in which two people were killed and scores wounded.
