The Egyptian military says it has discovered parts of debris from missing EgyptAir flight MS804, 290 kilometers north of the Mediterranean seaside city of Alexandria.
The navy has also discovered a part of the passengers’ belongings and is sweeping the area looking for the plane’s black box, the military said in a statement.
Search teams have been scouring the Mediterranean Sea for the remains of the plane, which disappeared with 66 people on board yesterday.
The office of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi issued a statement offering the President’s condolences to the families of those on board.
“The presidency with utmost sadness and regret mourns the victims on aboard the EgyptAir flight who were killed after the plane crashed in the Mediterranean on its way back to Cairo from Paris,” the statement read.
The discovery comes after debris found floating off a Greek island turned out to be unrelated to the crashed plane.
In a Facebook post, EgyptAir also confirmed debris had been found and offered its condolences to friends and families of those onboard.
“EgyptAir sincerely conveys its deepest sorrow to the families and friends of the passengers onboard Flight MS804,” the Facebook statement said.
“We extend our deepest sympathies to those affected and have engaged international emergency support group Kenyon to assist with care for those touched by this tragedy.”
