BRUSSELS:  Britain has offered its support to Egypt over the missing EgyptAir plane that disappeared over the Mediterranean Sea on Thursday, British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said, adding that one Briton was on board.

Hammond said it was too early to speculate on why the plane had disappeared.

“We know that there’s a British passport holder on board, who got onto the plane in Paris,” Hammond said. “We have offered assistance to the Egyptian authorities but so far we have not had any requests for support,” he told reporters in the margins of a NATO foreign ministers meeting.
