ADDIS ABABA, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Ethiopia’s former deputy intelligence chief has been arrested, Attorney General Berhanu Tsegaye said on Twitter on Thursday, in the latest such move targeting security officials for human rights abuses and corruption.

“Former deputy of NISS and Federal Police Commission Commissioner General Yared Zerihun has been apprehended by police,” Berhanu Tsegaye said on Twitter early on Thursday.

He did not disclose any details, but the arrest followed the arrest of dozens of security officials on charges of human rights abuse and corruption. (Reporting by Aaron Maasho; Editing by George Obulutsa)
