Added On March 12, 2019

 Ethiopian Airlines has confirmed that all 157 people aboard a flight that crashed earlier Sunday en route to Nairobi, Kenya, were killed.

The incident on Sunday, which involved a Boeing 737-800 MAX, occurred a few minutes after the aircraft took off from Addis Ababa Bole International Airport to Nairobi, Kenya.
The airline said it crashed around Bishoftu town, some 45 km from the capital Addis Ababa.
The 157 people aboard ET 302 included nationals from over 30 countries.
The aircraft, which was obtained by the Ethiopian airline last November, has only been in service for four months, flying more than 1,200 hours until Sunday's crash.
There was no immediate indication why the plane went down.
Kenyan government has formed two emergency centers to counsel those affected by the tragedy.
