Ethiopian Airlines pilots followed proper guidance in the fatal crash of a Boeing MAX 8 aeroplane last month, Ethiopia’s minister of transport, Dagmawit Moges, said on Thursday as she delivered the first official report on the disaster.

“The crew performed all the procedures repeatedly provided by the manufacturer but was not able to control the aircraft,” Dagmawit told a news conference in the capital, Addis Ababa.

Families of the 157 victims, regulators and travellers around the world are waiting for clues to the accident after the new Boeing jet crashed six minutes after take-off.
