EgyptAir said search and rescue teams were now being organised.

In March, an EgyptAir flight from Alexandria to Cairo was forced to land in Cyprus after being hijacked by a man claiming to be wearing an explosives suicide belt.

No one was injured in the incident, and the vest was later determined to be fake.
