0

A passenger plane carrying almost 200 passengers has come down shortly after take-off.

The Lion Air Boeing 737 passenger plane came down shortly after taking off from the Indonesian capital Jakarta.
Flight JT-610 had just set off from Jakarta bound for the city of Pangkal Pinang, the main city in the Bangka Belitung Islands.

It was last seen on the radar at 6.22am local time (11.22pm Sunday UK time), at a height of 2,500 to 3,000ft.
But it lost contact with ground control just 13 minutes after takeoff and crashed into the Java Sea off the coast of the Indonesian island.

Indonesia’s disaster agency confirmed 189 passengers and crew were on board when the plane came down.

Officials said one child and two infants had been onboard the plane at the time.
Yusuf Latif, a spokesman for the agency, told reporters: “It has been confirmed that it has crashed”.
The conditions of passengers and crew are unknown.
