Ethiopia crash: Remembering the victims

As Ethiopia releases the preliminary report into last month’s plane crash that killed 157 people let’s remember the victims.

Passengers from more than 30 countries were on board the Ethiopian Airlines flight from Addis Ababa to Nairobi that went down on 10 March.

Among the victims were 32 Kenyans, 18 Canadians, nine Ethiopians and seven Britons, according to a passenger list published by Ethiopian officials.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres described the crash as a “global tragedy”. A number of passengers are believed to have been affiliated with the UN.

A former Kenyan football administrator, a “stellar” US student and a Slovakian MP’s family all died in the crash. One Kenyan man lost his wife, daughter and three grandchildren, while a Canadian family of six also died on flight ET302.

One of the youngest passengers was just nine months old.
