Live Updates: China Grounds Boeing 737 Max 8 Planes After Ethiopia Crash – The New York Times
Victims of crash came from around the world
Black body bags were spread across the red sands near Bishoftu, Ethiopia, on Monday as word of the crash traveled to the families of the 157 victims, who were from at least 35 countries.
Investigators have yet to locate the flight data recorder, the so-called black box, which they hope will shed light on what brought down a new plane on a clear, sunny day.
A list of the dead released by Ethiopian Airlines included passengers from China, the United States, Saudi Arabia, Nepal, Israel, India and Somalia. Kenya lost 32 citizens. Canada lost 18.
The flight was traveling from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to Nairobi, Kenya. Many of the victims worked for the United Nations and were set to attend a conference on the environment in Nairobi on Monday.
