344

The remains of 28 out of 32 Kenyans who died in the tragic Ethiopian Airlines plane crash in March have been flown to Nairobi.

Specialized caskets bearing the remains of 28 victims arrived aboard an Ethiopian Airlines aircraft that landed at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport moments on Monday morning.

Hearses were lined up at the gate of the VIP terminal of JKIA where families and friends of the crash victims are gathered ahead of clearance.

The remains will be released to only close family members.

Flight ET302 crashed on 10 March shortly after take-off killing all 157 people on board.

According to Ethiopian authorities, the bodies were severely damaged in the crash, and only after extensive DNA tests were the remains matched to corresponding families.

The DNA matching took more than 240 days to conclude.
