A passenger plane of Indonesia's Lion Air crashed shortly after taking off from Jakarta's international airport on Monday, local media quoted the country's search and rescue agency as saying.

The Chinese side has not been informed that any Chinese nationals were aboard the plane so far, said Lu, adding that "we will keep track of the rescue progress."

He stressed that the Chinese side will make an announcement in due course if there is any news regarding Chinese passengers and will provide assistance in relevant work.
