Toronto man, 72, identified as Canadian victim of Ethiopia plane crash

A Toronto Muslim organization has identified a 72-year-old member of their community as a victim of Sunday’s plane crash in Ethiopia.

The Ismaili Centre says Ameen Noormohamed was one of the 157 people on board the plane when it crashed moments after takeoff from Addis Ababa.

The centre says Noormohamed lived in the Toronto area.

It says his family members are currently in Kenya making funeral arrangements.

Noormohamed was one of 18 Canadians who died in the crash.

The other Canadian victims included several humanitarian and aid workers, a high school teacher and a family from Brampton, Ont.
