Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi has died aged 57 in a hospital "abroad", the government says.

It did not give details but an EU spokesman later told journalists he had died in Brussels, Belgium.

Mr Meles had not been seen in public for weeks and speculation about his health mounted when he missed a summit in Addis Ababa last month.
