Ethiopia holds state funeral for air crash victims

The Ethiopian parliament announced a state funeral on Monday for victims of an Ethiopian Airlines crash on Sunday, which killed all 157 people on board.

The victims were from 35 countries, including at least 19 UN staff members, according to the airline.

Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET302 bound for Nairobi crashed minutes after takeoff. It was the 2nd crash in 5 months involving a Boeing 737 Max8 and comparisons are being drawn with a Lion Air accident in Indonesia last October.
