Egyptair: Wreckage of plane found off Greece

The wreckage of Egyptair flight MS804 that had disappeared from radar Thursday on a journey from Paris to Cairo has been found off Greece near the island of Karpathos, the airline and Egyptian Foreign Ministry said.

Egyptair received a letter from the ministry saying that materials have been found floating on the water that are likely to be parts of the plane wreckage as well as two life jackets and plastic materials, an official source at the airliner said.

Coordination is under way with the Greek authorities to identify the found material, the source added.
