Pope Francis Offers Condolences After Plane Crash in China

STRRescuers head to the site of a plane crash in Tengxian county, Wuzhou city, in China’s southern Guangxi region on March 22. A China Eastern passenger jet carrying 132 people crashed onto a mountainside in southern China on March 21 causing a large fire; the plane crashed shortly after losing contact with air traffic control and dropping thousands of meters in just three minutes.

China’s Civil Aviation Administration said on Tuesday that rescuers had so far failed to discover any survivors.
