28 remains of Ethiopia Airlines crash victims land at JKIA, 32 Kenyans died in the March 2019 accident

The Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) was on Monday filled with family members of the Kenyan victims of the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 which crashed on March 10, 2019 killing all 157 passengers on board.

The families were finally able to receive the positively identified remains of 28 of the 32 Kenyan victims in the tragic crash.

The process of identification took seven months and was spear-headed by the International Police (Interpol) Incident Response Team.

"The Interpol Incident Response Team (IRT) deployed following the crash of the Ethiopian Airlines plane in March has completed its task, assisting with the successful identification of all victims of the deadly disaster

"In particular, work in partnership with INTERPOL member countries and expertise from the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) resulted in 48 victims positively identified by their fingerprints," a statement by the global police body reported.

The Kenyan government is yet to give a comprehensive statement on the matter.
