A China Eastern Airlines Boeing 737 Chinese passenger plane with 132 people on board has crashed in a mountainous area of southern China.

Flight MU5735 left Kunming at 13:11 local time (05:11 GMT) and was scheduled to arrive in Guangzhou at 15:05 when it crashed in hills in Guangxi province and caught fire.

There is no confirmation yet on any survivors, the number of causalities and reason for the crash are not yet known.

Rescue crews have been sent to the crash site and have confirmed that say a fire in the woods caused when the aircraft came down has been put out.

The Airline is yet to comment on the crash, or respond to queries, but it has greyed out its logo on its Weibo account and also changed its website to black and white- a sign of mourning, local media reported.

China’s Civil Aviation Administration said it had also dispatched its investigators to the scene.
