Families of Ethiopian Airlines Crash Victims Given Soil from the Crash Site to Burry


Grieving family members of those who died in the Ethiopian Airlines plane crash are being given sacks of earth to bury in place of the remains of their loved ones.

The Ethiopian Airlines plane crashed six minutes after taking off from Addis Ababa airport en route to Nairobi, killing all 157 people on board.

The soil from the site is being delivered to the relatives of the victims in place of the bodies since the bodies could not be identified.

Authorities have also said that forensic DNA tests to identify the victims from 35 countries had began and the results would be shared with the relatives of victims as soon as the investigations were concluded.

Thousands of people turned out for a mass memorial service for the dead in Addis Ababa on Sunday, one week after the crash.
