Terrorism ‘most likely’ cause of EgyptAir flight MS804 crash

Egypt has said terrorism was more likely than a technical fault to have caused EgyptAir flight MS804 to abruptly swerve and fall out of the night sky on Thursday, plunging into the Mediterranean with 66 people on board.

Possible debris from the missing plane was found bobbing in the sea, as a major international search got underway. It included life jackets and “floating material” and appeared to have come from the aircraft, Egypt’s civil aviation ministry said, citing official Greek reports.

But the reason for the catastrophe – which occurred on a flight from Paris to Cairo, in perfect weather conditions and soon after the plane entered Egyptian airspace – remained unclear on Thursday night.
