A possible oil slick has been spotted by a European Space Agency (ESA) satellite in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea where Egyptair flight MS804 went missing, the agency says.
The slick is approximately 2 kilometres long and was spotted by the Sentinel-1A radar satellite approximately 40 kilometres south-east of the last-known location of the plane, the ESA says. The image was taken on Thursday afternoon.
ESA says it informed the authorities in charge of the search operations. "There is, however, no guarantee that the slick is from the missing aircraft," the ESA says.
