UC Davis Researcher Killed By Anti-Government Ethiopian Protesters

For the record.

University of California, Davis officials say that a postdoctoral researcher in the university’s plant biology department was killed in Ethiopia when the vehicle she was riding in was struck by rocks thrown by protesters.

The university said in a statement Wednesday that Sharon Gray was in the East African country for a meeting about her research when she was killed Tuesday while traveling in a car in the outskirts of the capital, Addis Ababa.

UC Davis says another member of the plant biology department who was traveling with Gray was not injured in is headed home.

This is the first foreigner killed in the massive anti-government protests that have claimed the lives of hundreds of protesters since November 2015.
