A major investigation is under way after an EgyptAir passenger jet disappeared over the Mediterranean.

Flight MS804 was travelling from Paris to Cairo with 66 passengers and crew when it vanished yesterday.

Greece's defense minister said radar showed the Airbus A320 had made two sharp turns and dropped more than 25,000 feet before plunging into the sea.

Egypt says the plane was more likely to have been brought down by a terrorist act than a technical fault.

A major search operation involving Egyptian, Greek, French and British military units is taking place near the Greek island of Karpathos.
