CAIRO, May 19 (Reuters) - Egypt’s aviation minister said that a terrorist attack was more likely to have taken down the missing EgyptAir aircraft early Thursday morning than a technical failure.
There were no known security concerns about passengers aboard the missing plane but further checks are underway, he told a news conference.
The minister said however that it was still too early to draw any conclusions as to the cause of the plane’s disappearance.
