A preliminary report released in April indicated that the Ethiopian Airlines pilots wrestled with a computer system that repeatedly ordered the nose down because of faulty sensor data.

The same system was a focus of the preliminary report into the October Lion Air crash in Indonesia, which killed 189 people.

The Ethiopian Airlines Corporate Communications Director Asrat Begashaw said there were 33 nationalities on board.

The Boeing 737 passenger jet, which was new, is said to have had 149 passengers and eight crew on board.
