A China Eastern Airlines aircraft carrying 132 people crashed in Southern China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region on Monday, the Civil Aviation Administration of China said.

The plane was traveling from Kunming, capital of Yunnan province, to Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong province. Air traffic controllers lost track of the plane in Wuzhou, Guangxi. The flight was carrying 123 passengers and nine crew members.

The administration initiated the nation's emergency response mechanism and dispatched a working group to the crash site to investigate. No information concerning casualties was available.

A village official who participated in the on-site rescue said the plane had completely disintegrated and he did not see remains of the victims at the scene, according to Chutian Metropolis Daily - a newspaper based in Wuhan, Hubei province.
