Two senior United States diplomats expelled by the Zambian government will leave tonight (June 24), US Embassy sources said. The expulsion order, announced by the Foreign Ministry Monday, also said a Foreign Ministry official had been arrested on allegations of being an agent of the Central Intelligence Agency.
