EgyptAir plane ‘crashes in Mediterranean’

Update 8am London: It was confirmed on Thursday morning that a missing EgyptAir flight from Paris to Cairo had crashed. French officials said an act of terrorism “could not be ruled out.”

The Airbus A320 with 66 people on board left Paris late on Wednesday night and had lost contact with air traffic control after crossing into Egyptian air space over the Mediterranean. There were conflicting reports about whether a distress call had been received from the plane, or whether or not such a signal may have been sent automatically.
