2 bodies, debris found from crashed EgyptAir flight MS804

Two bodies have been reportedly recovered from the EgyptAir flight MS804 that crashed in the early hours of Thursday (May 19, 2016).

The bodies were found in water in the search area according to Al Arabiya, a Saudi television news channel. It also reports that debris and pieces of plastic were found.

The Greek army has told Reuters that it has found debris feared to be from missing flight MS804 in the search area.

The Greek military official said that the items were found 230 miles southeast of the Island of Crete, but within the Egyptian air traffic control area. He said one of the items was “oblong.”

Meanwhile, the missing EgyptAir flight MS804 was more likely brought down by a terrorist attack than a technical breakdown, Egypt’s aviation minister said today.

Sherif Fathy told The Telegraph: “If you analyse the situation properly, the possibility of having a terror attack is higher than the possibility of having a technical fault.”

Mr Fathy however said it was still not clear what happened to the aircraft and that it was impossible to draw conclusions before any wreckage or the aircraft’s blackbox were recovered.
