Ethiopia Seeks Prince's Remains

The President of Ethiopia has sent Queen elizabeth II a formal request for the remains of a prince who died in Britain more than a century ago. The request is said to be under consideration by the royal household at Windsor Castle where Prince Alemayehu was buried. President Girma hopes the prince's bones can be reburied for millennium celebrations in September. Ethiopia has been waging a lively campaign to get back historic treasures looted during the last two centuries.
