A Boeing 737-800 carrying seven crew members and 83 passengers crashed into the Mediterranean Sea within minutes of takeoff Monday.

At this time authorities do not know the exact cause of the crash, but Lebanese President, Michael Sulayman has said there is no indication that sabotage played a role in the flight's crash.

Ethiopian Airlines Flight 409 left Rafik Hariri International Airport in Beirut, Lebanon at approximately 2:30 a.m. destined for the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, when it "suddenly disappeared from radar," said Lebanese minister of public works and transportation, Ghazi El Aridi.

The plane crashed about 9 miles south of Beirut.
