Fire guts Ethiopian hotel made famous by 'Scoop'

Fire has badly damaged a historic hotel in Ethiopia's capital made famous as the setting for Evelyn Waugh's 1938 satirical novel "Scoop". "Within a few minutes the whole place was alight and smoke was coming out the eaves," said British tourist Clem Clemson, speaking Sunday, as fire brigades poured water on the still smoking remains of the hotel.
