Written by thereachfm on March 19, 2019
On the foreign scene, families of the 157 Ethiopian Airlines plane disaster were at the weekend given bags of scorched earth from the crash site in place of bodies for burial.
The measure was taken as reports say the forensic identification of bodies will last six months in addition to the fact that none of the bodies were intact as they were all charred and fragmented.
An Ethiopian government official also confirmed the soil deliveries saying forensic DNA work has begun to identify the remains of the victims of the crash, who came from 35 different countries, among them two Nigerians.
