Search intensifies for missing EgyptAir jet



Missing EgyptAir plane
A massive search is currently underway to find the missing EgyptAir jet carrying at least 69 people from Paris to Cairo which according to reports plunged into the Mediterranean Sea.
Several countries have joined the search to find the jet as Egyptian authorities points to possible “terror” attack behind the plunging of the airliner into the sea.
According to Egypt’s aviation minister a “terrorist” attack would be a more likely scenario than a technical failure but he said it was too soon to say why the Airbus A320 flying from Paris to Cairo had vanished from radar screens.
The incident also raised fears of a repeat of the bombing of a Russian passenger jet by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) group over Egypt last October that killed 224 people.
