Missing Egyptair plane: Flight from Paris to Cairo disappears in Mediterranean (part 2)

On Thursday morning, an EgyptAir flight from Paris to Cairo went missing with 66 people on board. Search operations are continuing in the Mediterranean Sea to locate debris and possibly the wreckage from the plane. We do not know what caused the plane to go down – a technical failure or a possible terror attack – and nothing is being ruled out at this stage. Families of the passengers are gathering at both Paris and Cairo airports.
