Boeing has grounded its entire global fleet of 737 Max 8 aircraft after investigators uncovered new evidence at the scene of the fatal Ethiopian Airlines crash.

The US plane‑maker says it would suspend all 371 of the aircraft.

The Federal Aviation Administration said fresh evidence as well as newly refined satellite data prompted the decision to temporarily ban the jets.

The say they had previously held out while many countries banned the aircraft.

The crash on Sunday in Addis Ababa killed 157 people.

It was the second fatal Max 8 disaster in five months after one crashed over Indonesia in October, claiming 189 lives.
