Egyptian Airlines Flight MS804 – level 1

26-05-2016 15:00

This news is about the Egyptian Airlines flight MS804. It crashes into the Mediterranean Sea last Thursday. There are 66 people on the plane. All of them die.

People look for the remains. The search area is in the north of Egypt. People find clothing, seat belts, bags, and even body parts. People are still looking for the black box system. This system holds information about the flight. It can tell us a lot.

No terror group takes responsibility. Some Egyptians believe that the crash is an act of God.

Difficult words: remains (the pieces of something broken or body parts), seat belt (a belt at your seat where you sit for protection), take responsibility (to say that you did something).

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