Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi offered his condolences to the families and friends of passengers who were on board EgyptAir flight MS804.

The President’s statement came after the Egyptian military announced that it had discovered the wreckage of the airplane.

“The presidency mourns with utmost sadness and deep sorrow the victims on board the EgyptAir flight who were killed after the plane crashed in the Mediterranean Sea on its way back to Cairo from Paris,” said President Sisi in a statement released by the Presidency.

The President also thanked Greece, France and other countries for their assistance in the search for flight MS804.
