The plane, bound for Nairobi, Kenya, crashed shortly after takeoff from Ethiopia's capital Addis Ababa.

Passengers from some 35 countries were on board the Boeing 737 MAX 8 jetliner when it crashed shortly after takeoff on Sunday morning from Addis Ababa en route to Nairobi, Kenya.

The last deadly crash of an Ethiopian Airlines passenger flight was in 2010, when a plane went down minutes after takeoff from Beirut, killing all 90 people on board. He said they included 32 Kenyans, 18 Canadians, nine Ethiopians, eight Italians, eight Chinese citizens, eight Americans, seven British citizens, seven French citizens, six Egyptians, five Dutch citizens, four Indians, four people from Slovakia, three Austrians, three Swedes, three Russians, two Moroccans, two Spaniards, two Poles and two Israelis.

The count is not final.

At Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta airport some relatives and friends of passengers waited for hours with no information from airport authorities.

The crash comes as Ethiopian has been snapping up stakes in small carriers around the continent to pre-empt potential rivals and become the dominant pan-African airline.

One witness told AFP the plane was on fire before crashing, and swerving erratically.

According to Swedish flight-tracking website flightradar24, the passenger jet "had unstable vertical speed" before it crashed.

As the sun set, the airline's chief operating officer said the plane's flight data recorder had not yet been found.

The Max mock-up is the newest version of Boeing's workhorse 737 models, the world's most popular commercial aircraft.

Shocked leaders of the United Nations, the U.N. refugee agency and the World Food Program announced that colleagues had been on the plane.

The fleet will continue flying since the cause of the crash is not clear, the CEO said. It was being flown by a "senior pilot" who had worked for the airline since 2010.

The crash was strikingly similar to that of a Lion Air jet of the same Boeing model in Indonesian seas past year, killing 189 people.

A technical team from Boeing will be traveling to the crash site to help in the investigation, the company said in a statement, as will a team from the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board. Southwest said it remained confident in the safety of its more than 750 Boeing jets.
