Search intensifies for missing EgyptAir plane

A massive search is continuing for a second day for an EgyptAir plane that disappeared over the Mediterranean, the BBC reports.

Greek, Egyptian, French and UK military units are taking part in the operation near Greece’s Karpathos island.

Flight MS804 was en route from Paris to Cairo with 66 passengers and crew when it vanished early on Thursday.

Greece said radar showed the Airbus A320 had made two sharp turns and dropped more than 7,620m before plunging into the sea.

Egypt says the plane was more likely to have been brought down by a terrorist act than a technical fault.

Most of the people on board Flight MS804 were from Egypt and France. A Briton was also among the passengers.

So far, no wreckage or debris from the aircraft has been found.
