However, earlier, CAAC News, a publication managed by the aviation regulator, said China had found the second black box, but it later deleted the news post from its official social media platforms.

For the unversed, a China Eastern Airlines Boeing 737 with 132 people on board had crashed in the mountains in southern China on a domestic flight on Monday. Rescue workers found no sign of survivors. This has been recorded as the country’s worst air tragedy in more than a decade.

The plane was flying from the southwestern city of Kunming, capital of Yunnan province, to Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong, which borders Hong Kong. There was no immediate word on the cause of the crash.

The Boeing 737 plane crashed in the rural countryside near Wuzhou city, Guangxi region, and “caused a mountain fire,” CCTV said, citing the provincial emergency management bureau. The CAAC said the aircraft lost contact over the city of Wuzhou. It had 122 passengers and nine crew on board. State media said earlier that there were 132 people on board.
