Ethiopian jet crash bodies pulled from sea off Beirut

At least 24 bodies of people killed in an Ethiopian Airlines plane crash off Beirut have been pulled from the sea. Addis Ababa-bound Flight ET409 burst into flames and crashed into the Mediterranean shortly after take-off from Beirut airport in stormy weather. Rescuers are continuing to search for bodies and wreckage, but officials say it is very unlikely that any of the 90 people on board will be found alive. A Lebanese minister said "bad weather was apparently the cause of the crash".
