Most relatives of the 102 people who died in the 2010 crash of an Afriqiyah Airways plane near Tripoli have reached compensation agreements with the Libyan airline.
Lawyers of the victims’ relatives and those representing the airline have confirmed the news. The total amount that the relatives of the 70 Dutch passengers on board the plane will receive has not been disclosed.
Relatives of more than 60 of the 70 Dutch victims have reached an agreement regarding damages. The agreements reached so far are broad outlines and the specific details have yet to be worked out.
The Libyan Airbus crashed exactly two years ago. A nine-year-old boy called Ruben was the sole survivor.
