Ethiopia government holds funeral for Boeing 737 Max victims

Intro

The Ethiopia government held funerals on Sunday for friends and relatives who perished in last week’s Ethiopian Airlines crash, which killed all onboard.

At least 35 nations were left bereaved when the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft crashed from the sky just minutes into its flight to Nairobi last Sunday, killing all 157 passengers and crew on board.

Relatives of the 17 Ethiopian victims gathered with hundreds of others at Holy Trinity Cathedral in Addis Ababa, sobbing and holding portraits of their loved ones as an Ethiopian Orthodox priest said the last rites.

“What I can’t forget is that she left an eight-month-old child and didn’t come back,” said Meselech Petros, whose sister Amma Tesfamariam was a flight attendant on the doomed aircraft.
