EgyptAir Flight Disappears Over Mediterranean - The New York Times

"CAIRO — Egypt and Greece mounted a marine search-and-rescue operation in the southern Aegean Sea early Thursday for an EgyptAir passenger jet with 66 people on board that suddenly disappeared over the Mediterranean shortly before it was due to land in Cairo.



The reason for the plane’s disappearance was unclear, but the developments touched off fears about terrorism and investigations in Egypt, Greece and France, where the plane took off. Aviation security in Egypt has been under intense scrutiny since a bomb brought down a Russian airliner over the Sinai Peninsula in October, killing all 224 people on board, and France has tightened airport security after a series of terrorist attacks last year."
