Searchers find part of Lebanon plane crash fuselage
Beirut: Searchers have located a large part of the fuselage of an Ethiopian Airlines plane that crashed in the sea off Lebanon last month killing 90 people, Transport Minister Ghazi Aridi said on Saturday.
"The vessel `Ocean Alert` has found part of the rear section of the aircraft`s cabin between 10 and 12 metres long at a depth of 45 metres off Naameh," 12 kilometres south of
Beirut, he said.
"Specialist teams are getting ready to dive on the site to look for the black boxes" or flight recorders that could reveal why the January 25 crash happened, he said.
The Boeing 737-800 went down before dawn just minutes after take-off during stormy weather from Beirut airport, bound for Addis Ababa with 83 passengers and seven crew on board.
No survivors were found, and only 15 bodies have so far been recovered.
