Relatives of Ethiopia plane crash victims mourn as black boxes probed

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Relatives of the victims of an airplane crash in Ethiopia wept and mourned their loved ones at the crash site on Thursday (March 14) as French investigators took possession of the jet's black boxes.

The crash on Sunday (March 10) happened six minutes after take-off from Addis Ababa.

It killed 157 people from 35 nations is the second such calamity involving Boeing's flagship new model in six months.

Possible links between the accidents have rocked the aviation industry.

Desperate to know what happened and to receive fragments if not corpses, given the fire and destruction at the site, relatives were at least able to vent their grief.

One woman, who lost her brother in the crash, said the pain and grief experienced by families had been made even more difficult because they had not been able to hold funerals.

Nations around the world, including an initially reluctant United States, have suspended the 371 MAX models in operation, though airlines are largely coping by switching planes.
