EgyptAir flight carrying 69 people disappears from radar

CAIRO: EgyptAir says an Airbus A320 carrying 59 passengers and 10 crew disappeared from radar early Thursday morning.

The airline said Flight 804 from Paris to Cairo vanished 2:45am Egypt time, 10 miles (16 kilometres) after it entered Egyptian air space.

An inspection was underway to find the airplane, which was at a height of 37,000 feet when it disappeared, the airline said on Twitter.

Earlier in March, a hijacker seized a domestic EgyptAir flight and forced it to land in Cyprus by threatening to blow it up with a fake explosives belt.

The hijacker was arrested after he allowed all passengers to disembark the plane and eventually surrendered to Cypriot authorities.
