Ethiopian Airlines Crash – Bodies Were Found

One day after Ethiopian Airlines flight 409 crashed into the Mediterranean Sea near Lebanon with 90 people aboard, rescue teams found 21 bodies in the water. Unfortunately so far it seems there are no survivors.

The Boeing 737-800 airliner took off at 2.30 am from Beirut’s international airport and headed to Ethiopian capitol Addis Ababa. About five minutes after departure it disappeared from the radar and crashed into the sea just 2 kms from the shore with 8 crew members and 82 passengers aboard. The reason of the accident is not known yet.

Prime Minister Saad Hariri ordered a national mourning day in Lebanon.
