Air Plane Crash |132 People was on board

A Chinese passenger plane with 132 people on board has crashed in a mountainous area of southern China. The China Eastern Airlines Boeing 737 was flying from Kunming to Guangzhou when it came down in hills in Guangxi province and caught fire.

It is feared there are no survivors, but the number of casualties – and reason for the crash are not yet known.

Chinese airlines generally have a good safety record: the last major accident took place 12 years ago. Rescue crews have been sent to the crash site and say a fire in woods caused when the aircraft came down has been put out.

Videos widely shared on social media that appear to be taken by locals show plane debris strewn around the hills, and a fiery blaze and smoke billowing from the crash site.
