Hope fades for 90 feared dead in Ethiopian aircraft fireball
"Ninety people, including two Britons, are feared dead after an Ethiopian airliner crashed into the Mediterranean in heavy storms yesterday.
"The Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737, bound for Addis Ababa, took off from Beirut in a thunderstorm at 2.30am and lost contact with the control tower soon afterwards.
"The aircraft was seen crashing into the sea in a ball of fire about seven miles (12km) south of the airport and three miles off the coast.
"One of the Britons on board was Afif Krisht, 57, whose ex-wife and family live in Plymouth, Devon. The name of the other Briton has not yet been confirmed."
