Bosnia to analyse bodies of Kenya Airways crash victims

Human remains gathered at the site of the Kenya Airways crash in Cameroon will under-go DNA testing in Bosnia to match fragmented parts to one another, the airline says..

All 114 people on board died when the flight between Douala and Nairobi crashed in remote swampland in the West African country on May 5.

Seven South Africans were among them.

The aircraft's black box will be analysed in Canada.

Kenya Airways spokesman Michael Okwiri said yesterday that the airline had compensated the families of passengers who were killed.

"Kenya Airways is not in a position to divulge the amounts that the next of kin have re-ceived," said Okwiri.
