WATCH: Heartbreaking scenes as Ethiopian Airlines staff honours crash plane crew

Ethiopian pilots and flight crew held a mourning vigil on Monday for the victims of a Ethopian Airlines crash which killed all 149 passengers and eight crew members on board.

Ethiopia's parliament declared on Monday a day of mourning over the crash of the Ethiopian Airlines jet, which ploughed into a field some 60km east of Addis Ababa on Sunday - just six minutes after taking off from the capital on a flight to Nairobi.
