My condolences go to the families of the 23 Ethiopian nationals, most of whom worked as migrant domestic workers in Lebanese homes, who died in the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines plane today morning off the coast of Lebanon. On TV, I saw Ethiopian girls screaming because they have lost a friend, relative or sister on that plane.

In the photos taken from (Matthew Cassel): Samira Hossein mourns the loss of her sister, Mikia, who was a passenger on the Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed off the coast of Beirut this morning. The two sisters came to Lebanon to be employed as domestic workers for Lebanese families.

UPDATE: List of names of Ethiopians who were on the plan (from Al-Akhbar newspaper)
