The latest crash of Ethiopian Airlines, which claimed more than 150 lives, is raising many reactions globally, some world leaders sending their condolences while others detail the lost lives of their subjects.
Here are the latest updates on the plane crash that RegionWeek would like to share with you:
China grounds all of its Boeing Co 737 MAX 8 after a deadly plane crash.
China’s aviation regulator on Monday grounded nearly 100 Boeing Co 737 MAX 8 aircraft operated by its airlines, more than a quarter of the global fleet of the jets, after a deadly crash of one of the planes in Ethiopia.
However, a U.S. official told Reuters that it was unclear what information the Chinese regulator was acting on because the investigation of Sunday’s crash, the second involving the latest version of the narrowbody jet, was in the early stages. The US official said that there was a lack of information on what caused the Ethiopian crash.
‘Search for remains underway’.
Ethiopian authorities are searching for remains in the wake of the crash of the Ethiopian Airlines.
At least 22 UN staff were on the flight, many headed for an annual assembly of the UN Environment Programme which opened under a dark cloud in Nairobi Monday.
