Cairo: A day after EgyptAir flight number MS804, from Paris to Cairo, that went missing from the radar over the Mediterranean Sea, the Egyptian search team on Friday confirmed finding the debris from missing plane and are now looking for the black box.

The ill-fated Airbus A320 crashed with 56 passengers and 10 crew members on board on Thursday morning. All passengers, including British geologist Richard Osman are feared dead.

The US intelligence said there was no indication of any explosion. Terror attack, however, is not being ruled out by investigating officials.

The flight had left the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris for Cairo on Wednesday evening and lost contact with the radar three and a half hours into the journey, just 10 miles after entering the Egyptian air space.

French President Francois Hollande said "no hypothesis is ruled out or favoured," including the possibility that the plane was brought down by a terrorist attack.

However, no terrorist outfit has so far claimed any responsibility.
