The Police have revealed the identity of the man accused of shooting dead Ethiopia army chief Gen Seare Mekonnen and another generals.
The two men were killed on Saturday in the capital, Addis Ababa, in what the authorities have said said was part of an alleged attempt to overthrow the regional government in the Amhara state.
On Sunday the government said an unnamed bodyguard was responsible and he had been arrested.
Then on Monday police chief Endeshaw Tasew announced that the bodyguard had killed himself after killing the generals. But later that day the federal police apologised and said the bodyguard was recovering from gunshot wounds in hospital.
The bodyguard has been named on state-run television ETV as Corporal Mesafint Tigabu. The channel also displayed his picture.
Corporal Mesafint is still in the intensive care unit under heavy security, ETV said
