Breaking News: Seven Britons confirmed to have died in Ethiopian plane crash


157 people – including seven UK nationals – are confirmed to have died in an Ethiopian Airlines flight crash from Addis Ababa to Nairobi.

Kenya’s transport secretary James Macharia confirmed that at least 35 nationalities were involved and called the crash a “regrettable incident”.

He said Kenyan authorities were trying to find out exactly what happened, but because the plane came down in Ethiopian airspace they had limited information.

The manufacturer of the plane, Boeing, said it was “deeply saddened” at the tragedy.
