    Background: Latest film of Ethiopia's Emperor Haile Selassie shows his arrival at Sao Paolo, Brazil, on Dec. 14th, only a few hours before he heard about the coup d'etat in Addis Ababa. On receiving the news, he immediately left Brazil to return home, where the upraising has now been quelled, according to official reports.

    Accompanying him when he flew into Sao Paolo was his granddaughter, Aida Desta. They had just visited the new capital city of Brasilia, during the Emperor's official but short-lived tour of Brazil.
