After the disappearance, last night in the Mediterranean Sea, of a flight from Paris to Cairo with “66 persons on board”, the fear for a new tragedy makes these hours oppressive . Among “the 56 passengers there were also a child and two newborns”. The “crew” was composed by “seven members” and “three men of the security” were also present. The nationalities of the passengers would include thirty Egyptians, fifteen French, two Iraqis, a Brithish citizen, one Canadian, one Belgian, one Portuguese, one Algerian, one Sudanese, a citizen of Chad, one from Saudi Arabia and one from Kuwait (AGI).
Some hours ago, EGYPTAIR informed, by its Twitter account, as one of its officials “declared that EGYPTAIR A320 aircraft in its flight number MS804 lost contact with radar above the Mediterranean Sea”.
The “Airbus” would have “fallen in the Mediterranean Sea”, around “130 miles off the Greek Dodecanese island of Karpathos, in the Egyptian airspace”. The flag airline of Egypt “invited” to be cautious “about the causes” of the tragic event. In any case, according to “the experts” – noticed AGI press agency – “the most probable hypothesis” would correspond to an “attack”, also if no theory seems excluded at present (ibidem).
