Lebanon’s president ruled out terrorism as the cause for the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines flight from Beirut. Michel Suleiman said Monday that rescue efforts would continue despite stormy weather.
At least 23 bodies were recovered from the crash site.
The plane, carrying 90 passengers and crew members, disappeared from the radar just minutes after taking off from the Lebanese capital. Al-Arabiya reported that the wife of the French ambassador to Lebanon was aboard the flight.
During a press conference called by Suleiman after the plane was discovered to have crashed into the Mediterranean Sea, he said Lebanese rescue forces would continue to search for survivors despite the difficult weather.
