ZAMBIAN POLICE SEEK AMBASSADOR'S KILLERS

The body of Mozambican Ambassador Sharfudine Khan, who formerly represented Mozambique's ruling party in the United States, is being flown home from Lusaka Thursday while Zambian police seek his murderers.

Khan was found strangled in his Lusaka residence Tuesday. He had been in Lusaka for five months and was living alone without a security guard.Zambian Foreign Minister Vernon Mwaanga told a news conference Tuesday the residence had been "completely ransacked" but no items of value appeared to be missing. He was unable to say whether the killing was politically motivated.
