Rescuers have scoured heavily forested mountain slopes in southern China, looking for victims and flight recorders from a China Eastern Airlines passenger jet that crashed with one hundred and thirty-two people on board.

State media said parts of the Boeing 737-800 were strewn among trees charred by fire after China’s first crash of a commercial jetliner since Twenty-ten.

Flight MU5735 was travelling to the port city of Guangzhou from Kunming, capital of the southwestern province of Yunnan, when it suddenly plunged from cruising altitude and crashed in the mountains of Guangxi less than an hour before it was due to land.

Highlighting the top-level concern, Vice Premier, Liu He went to Guangxi on Monday night to oversee search and rescue operations.
