The families of people killed in the Ethiopian Airlines plane crash stormed out of a meeting with the airline in Addis Ababa on Thursday, complaining of a lack of information.
Some family members have expressed frustration with the pace of the investigation and release of information.
"I'm so angry," said Yemeni citizen Abdulmajid Shariff, 38, who lost his brother-in-law in Sunday's crash.
"They called us to give us a report on bodies and the reasons for the crash but there was no information."
Riyadh resident Sultan Al Mutairi, whose brother was among the 157 people killed in the crash, told Reuters: "We did not get any answers (at the meeting)."
