Egypt’s military and national airline say debris from the crashed EgyptAir flight has been recovered in the Mediterranean.

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

Egypt’s army spokesman said wreckage and passenger belongings were found 290km (180 miles) off the coast of Alexandria in Egypt.

EgyptAir also confirmed the discovery to the BBC.

Greek, Egyptian, French and UK military units have been taking part in a search operation near Greece’s Karpathos island.

Egyptian military ships, assisted by several other nations, are scouring the vast area for any signs of the plane's wreckage. Reuters
