Mysterious Disappearance of EgyptAir MS804
EgyptAir MS804 (en route to Egypt from France) went missing over the Mediterranean Sea on May 19 with 66 passengers and crew on board. Egyptian officials had initially linked the mysterious disappearance to terror activity but later retracted, asking everyone not to draw conclusions until investigations were complete.

It was later confirmed that EgyptAir MS804 had crashed into the Mediterranean. Immediately, a search crew drawn from France, Egypt and the United States was deployed.

According to EgyptAir officials, signals from the airbus showed the presence of smoke in the cockpit and the toilet minutes before the crash. A day after the disappearance, some debris was recovered 290 km north of Alexandria, Egypt.

While Egyptian officials still insist that possibility of a terror attack cannot be ruled out, no terror group has claimed responsibility for the crash.
