Two military jets transported the bodies of the 45 travelers who died in the tragic bus crash in Bulgaria.
Foreign affairs minister Bujar Osmani wrote on Facebook that upon request of some families, the bodies will be sent to their homes to pay due tributes.
“The remains of the citizens killed in a bus crash in Bulgaria after being transported to Skopje airport will be immediately sent to their homes and eternal resting places. This change comes in accordance with the requests of some of the families of the deceased”, an announcement from the foreign ministry on Facebook read.
Citizens who want to pay homages can still do so at a ceremony being held at the “Skanderbeg Square” in Skopje.
Regional state authorities were also seen attending the ceremony, including Kosovo President Vjosa Osmani and Economy Minister Rozeta Hajdari, as well as Albania’s Parliament Speaker Lindita Nikolla and Defense Minister Niko Peleshi.
45 people, mainly ethnic Albanians, died when the bus went on fire after hitting a side rail in the early hours of November 23, some 40 kilometers away from Sofia.
Only 7 people survived the crash, while the main cause of the accident is still undetermined.
