The United States has grounded grounded all Boeing 737 Max jets while it helps with investigations into Sunday's fatal Air Ethiopia crash, the Federal Aviation Administration said on Wednesday.

All 157 passengers on the doomed Air Ethiopia flight were killed. The plane was traveling from Ethiopia to Kenya, and crashed six minutes into its flight timeThe FAA cited that it was grounding the American-made Boeing 737 Max flights because of new evidence, which it said "showed similarities between two fatal crashes of Boeing 737 Max 8, which has left 346 people dead in the space of five months."

In October, a Boeing 737 Max operated Lion Air flight traveling from Indonesia crashed into the Java Sea killing over 180 people on board.
