CAIRO: The French authorities announced they are viewing the films of 9,000 surveillance cameras at Charles de Gaulle Airport, Sky News Arabia reported Friday.

An Egyptian plane that had departed from the Paris airport crashed into the Mediterranean Thursday.

Egyptian Civil Aviation Minister Sherif Fathy said Thursday the possibility that a “terrorist act” is behind the disappearance of flight MS804 over the Mediterranean is higher than that of a technical failure.

The Egyptian military found debris of the plane and some passenger belongings 290 kilometers north of Alexandria Friday. After the announcement was made, both EgyptAir and the Egyptian presidency offered their condolences to the families of the 66 victims of the crash.
