WASHINGTON - Hulgize Kassa, a 52-year-old from Raleigh, North Carolina, earned his spot at the front of the line. The father of two camped outside Walter E. Washington Convention Center starting at midnight Friday, watching as Ethiopians from as far away as Colorado and Texas arrived with boxes of food, speakers and selfie sticks. By 7 a.m. Saturday, thousands had gathered in the streets, honking car horns and sharing food. Most wore T-shirts emblazoned with the face of their homeland's newly minted prime minister, Abiy Ahmed.
