“There are no survivors onboard the flight, which carried passengers from 33 countries,” the Ethiopian state broadcaster shared. Airlines officials said that 32 Kenyans, nine Ethiopians and eight Americans were among those on the aircraft. It was also said that some passengers were on their way to attend a United Nations environmental conference in Kenya, it added.

The jet was reportedly a new 737 MAX 8, the same model that crashed in Indonesia last October, killing 189 people. As of right now, officials have not yet determined the cause of the Ethiopian Airlines crash, but the flight had unstable vertical speed following takeoff, according to a report by Reuters.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s office and Kenya’s president, Uhuru Kenyatta both offered “deepest condolences” to the victim’s families.
