One of the 157 people killed in the Ethiopian Airlines crash has been identified as Mucaad Hussein, a St. Cloud resident.
KSTP reports Hussein’s death was confirmed by Haji Yussuf, a friend of Hussein.
Yussuf said Hussein went to Apollo High School in St. Cloud, went to St. Cloud Tech and also took classes at St. Cloud State.
Yussuf said Hussein had been visiting Morocco, but flew to Ethiopia after a flight had been canceled.
The Ethiopian Airlines jetliner crashed shortly after takeoff from the Ethiopian capital Sunday.
