Horn Affairs received the latest statement from the British Government on the issue from their Embassy in Addis Ababa. It reads:

A British national, Andargachew Tsege, was reported missing in Yemen on 24 June.

Since then UK officials have pressed the Yemeni authorities at senior levels to establish his whereabouts, including meeting with the Yemeni Ambassador in London this week.

We are aware of reports that he may now be in Ethiopia and we are urgently seeking confirmation from the relevant authorities given our deep concerns about the case.

We are continuing to provide consular assistance to his family.
