  BEIJING, Dec. 28 (Xinhua) -- China's Foreign Ministry said it is closely monitoring developments in missing AirAsia flight QZ8501 on Sunday.

  China is deeply worried about the safety of the passengers and crew and offers condolences to their families, Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said in a statement.
