Ceremonies were held at UN Headquarters in New York and Geneva to remember and honor the staff who died on board Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, which crashed near Addis Ababa last Sunday, killing all 157 passengers and crew.

We come together in sadness and solidarity to pay tribute to our fellow UN family members who perished,” said UN Secretary-General António Guterres, after laying a wreath in remembrance of the 21 staff members who lost their lives.

In doing so, we also remember all the victims of the air crash that claimed so many lives – including civil society partners and humanitarian workers,” he said, sending the Organization’s “deepest condolences and heartfelt wishes to their families and loved ones during this extremely difficult time.”
