Egyptian Airlines flight MS804 – level 2

Egyptian Airlines flight MS804 – level 2

26-05-2016 15:00

The Egyptian Airlines flight MS804 crashed into the Mediterranean last Thursday. We believe that all 66 people on the plane died.

People found clothing, seat belts, bags, and even body parts in the search area north of Egypt. Ships and aircraft continue to search this area – they are looking for the plane's black box system. It could uncover what happened to the flight.

The last details received from the plane suggested smoke in the toilets and in the electrical systems. The cause of the smoke is yet unknown.

No terror group took responsibility and some Egyptian locals believe that the crash was an act of God.

Difficult words: local (a local person, a person who lives somewhere), an act of God (something that we cannot explain).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
