At least 20 family members of the victims of the Sunday plane crash have arrived in Addis Ababa from Nairobi, seeking answers on their loved ones including if and when the remains would be released to them.
Many are thought to be parents to the victims who perished, going by their ageing looks, and are currently being received at the airline's hotel before further directions are issued. Before the end of the afternoon, they are expected to know whether their journey was in vain- considering the feelings shared by those who have been in Addis Ababa since Sunday, some already despaired and looking forward to return home later today.They just missed a morning meeting with Ethiopian Airlines authorities and the Kenyan Embassy in the city, but I'm time for another scheduled later in the afternoon.In the meeting, forensic experts are expected to give an update on whether the remains from the accidents would be identified and released to families, or not.
