Wreckage of Kenya Jetliner Found

Both CNN and ABC News are reporting that pieces of wreckage from a missing Kenya Arlines jet have been found in a forest about 15 miles from the airport. The plane was a Boeing 737-800, with 105 passengers, and nine crew members on board. Officials said that the plane issued a distress call but lost contact with the radio tower about 13 minutes after takeoff.

CNN adds that 200 rescue workers are standing by in the near-by city of Douala when the crash site is made more accessable.

There is no official word on survivors or deaths.
