Lovely air hostesses lost in the Ethiopia Airways plane crash. May their souls rest in peace.
Passengers of more than 35 nationalities were among the 157 people killed after an Ethiopian Airlines flight from Addis Ababa to Nairobi crashed six minutes after takeoff on Sunday morning.
The Boeing 737 Max 8 plane was believed to be carrying 149 passengers and eight crew members. The passengers included 32 Kenyan citizens, 18 people from Canada, nine from Ethiopia, nine from the UK, eight from each of Italy, China and the US, and seven from France.
Many of the passengers were en route to the UN environment assembly in the Kenyan capital.
Officials said at least 22 people affiliated with the organisation were killed in the crash, with some of the names yet to be disclosed.
At the opening of the UN assembly, delegates paid their respects with a moment of silence.
Siim Kiisler, the Estonian environment minister, said: “We have lost fellow delegates, interpreters and UN staff. I express my condolences to those who lost loved ones in the crash.”
