Ethiopia’s parliament has declared a day of mourning to remember the victims of the plane crash.

Flags are flying at half-mast in Ethiopia as the country mourns the 157 people killed in Sunday’s plane crash near the town of Bishoftu, 60km south-east of the capital Addis Ababa.

Passengers from more than 30 countries were on the flight, including 22 United Nations staff.

Others were doctors, academics and a well-known Nigerian writer Pius Adesanmi.

A Slovak MP, Anton Hrnko, confirmed that his wife and two children were on the plane.

Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed promised to publish the findings of the investigation.

It will take place in co-ordination with experts from Boeing and the US National Transportation Safety Board.
