An EgyptAir flight bound for Cairo crashed Thursday, with an Egyptian official saying that terror is a "stronger" possibility as a cause than technical error.

There were 66 people on board the plane that departed from Paris. More from the Associated Press:

EgyptAir Flight 804 was lost from radar at 2:45 a.m. local time when it was flying at 37,000 feet, the airline said. It said the Airbus A320 had vanished 10 miles after it entered Egyptian airspace.

The officials said the search is now underway for the debris in the southern Mediterranean Sea. They said the "possibility that the plane crashed has been confirmed," as the plane hasn't landed in any of the nearby airports.
