Sophia meets Ethiopian PM after recovering lost body parts

Sophia, the famous humanoid robot, has finally met Ethiopia’s prime minister after her lost body parts were found.

A bag containing some of the robot was lost at Frankfurt airport last week, which led to the cancellation of a press conference scheduled to take place on Friday at the Ethiopian National Museum in the capital, Addis Ababa.

Designed by Hong Kong firm Hanson Robotics, Sophia has been programmed to speak Amharic, Ethiopia's official language. She also speaks English.

Sophia was activated in 2015, according to a BBC report.

She shot to fame after becoming the first robot to gain the citizenship of a country – when Saudi Arabia gave her nationality last year.
