The missing flight MS804 EgyptAir enroute Paris to Cairo, carrying on board 66 passengers vanished at 2:30am on Wednesday, the Greek radar showed the air bus make two sharp turns before dropping into sea.

In a BBC report, French foreign minister Jean Marc Ayrault  said there has been “absolutely no indication” so far to how the plane came down. On the other hand Egypt government said the plane was more likely to have been brought down by terrorist act than technical faults.

However Greek, Egypt and the UK are seriously involved in the search operation near Greeces’ Karpathos island.

These combined effort led to the discovery of two aircraft seats and body parts. Three investigators from the French air accident bureau along technical adviser from the air bus have joined the Egyptian inquiry team.

After last November terrorist attacks on Paris, this incident has raised a lot of questions on whether this is another act of terrorism or an accident.

Eric Moutel, a lawyer for some airport employees told BBC that “there had been attempts by Islamist Groups to recruit airport staffs that have lost their licence.”
