5 Ethiopians killed in plane crash to return home


Beirut - The Ethiopian consulate in Lebanon has received the bodies of five Ethiopians who were killed in last month's plane crash in the Mediterranean and they were to be flown home later.

The Ethiopian Airlines flight crashed on January 25, just minutes after takeoff from Beirut during a fierce thunderstorm. All 90 people on board died.

Five coffins, covered with Ethiopian flags, were handed over at a Beirut government hospital Saturday. Lebanon's state-run National News Agency said they were of four women and a man.

According to lists released after the crash, there were 30 Ethiopians on the plane - 23 passengers and seven crew members.
A Lebanese forensics team returned on February 1 from Ethiopia with DNA samples from relatives to help identify victims.
