Families of the 157 Ethiopian Air C***h v*****s were on Sunday offered charred soil from the c***h site to bury with the bodies of their loved ones being burnt beyond recognition.

Wary that it might take up to half an year to identify what little remains there are after most of the bodies disintegrated on impact, officials started delivering 1kg sacks of the scorched soil to the families of the deceased.

Relatives who spoke to different news agencies on the ground confirmed that they had been asked to provide DNA samples to the airline to help identify the v*****s.

“The soil came as it became impossible to identify bodies and hand over remains to family members,” a mourner told the Associated Press (AP).

“We will not rest until we are given the real body or body parts of our loved ones.”

Most countries grounded the Boeing 737 Max 7 and 8 series after the Ethiopian Air C***h, the second in less than five months bringing the total number of the plane’s c********s to 346.

In October 2018, Lion Air Flight 610, a flight operated by Indonesian airline, Lion Air c*****d twelve minutes after takeoff. All 189 passengers and crew were k****d in the a******t.

The a******t led to aviation experts to question how a new plane that had only clocked 800 hours of flight c*****d.

Meanwhile, investigators have found glaring similarities between the Ethiopia and Indonesia air c*****s.
