Plane crash in Beirut…

An Ethiopian Airlines plane crashed into the Mediterranean Sea after taking off from Beirut early this morning.

“We haven’t found any survivors yet,” Minister of Public Works and Transport Ghazi Al-Aridi said in a phone interview. The aircraft left Rafik Hariri International Airport at 2:10 a.m., said an airport official, who declined to be identified because they weren’t authorized to speak to the media.

The Boeing Co. plane carried 90 passengers and crew, including 54 Lebanese nationals, according to state-run Lebanese National News Agency. Flight ET409 was bound for Addis Ababa, according to the airport’s Web site.

Wreckage has been found off the Lebanese coast and the navy and civil defense force are taking part in rescue efforts amid heavy rains, the news agency said. Flames were seen coming from the aircraft before the crash near Na’ameh town, south of Beirut, the news agency said.

God rest their souls in peace…
