ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - No bodies will be recovered from the site where Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 crashed, the airline’s spokesman said on Wednesday, because only fragmented remains survived the impact.

“There were no bodies,” he told Reuters.

Sunday’s still unexplained crash, just after take-off from Addis Ababa, killed all 157 people on board.
