A massive search is continuing for a second day for an EgyptAir plane that disappeared over the Mediterranean.

Greek, Egyptian, French and UK military units are taking part in the operation near Greece's Karpathos island.

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

Greece 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.
