JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Indonesia’s airline industry started 2021 on the wrong foot, as a Sriwijaya Air flight from Jakarta to Pontianak lost contact soon after taking off from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.

The disaster spurred a mass rescue effort to find the 62 passengers and crew on board the flight, or at least find the wreckage of the plane to piece the tragedy together. The initiative involved fishermen, the National Search and Rescue Agency [BASARNAS] and the Indonesian military.

And a tugboat carrying a barge with 4000 tons of coal from Banjarmasin, South Kalimantan to Surabaya East Java went badly, after the tugboat capsized. No casualties were reported. Read on to get the latest news, as curated by our editors:
