A Western diplomat told the Telegraph that reports on Ethiopian opposition websites claiming he had died were wrong. "Mr Zenawi is in Brussels receiving treatment," he said. "Rumours that he has died are not correct."
A spokesman for Belgium's Foreign Ministry said it had not officially been informed he was in the country. "We cannot discuss his presence or his health, that's something for the Ethiopian embassy or his family," he added.
Mr Zenawi has been the Prime Minister of Ethiopia since 1995, before which he was the president from 1991 to 1995. Ethiopia remains one of the poorest countries in the world and a major recipient of Western aid, but it also has one of its fastest growing economies.
