An EgyptAir flight on its way to Cairo from Paris disappeared from radar Wednesday night, according to a tweet from the airline.

“An informed source at Egyptair stated that Flight no MS804, which departed Paris at 23:09 (CEST), heading to Cairo has disappeared from radar,” the tweet read.

There were 56 passengers on board the Airbus A320 and 10 crew members, the airline said via Twitter. That number included two babies and a child, the airline said.

The families of the passengers were gathering at Cairo International Airport, where the airline was providing doctors, translators and other support and services. Several distressed family members collapsed at the airport, according to the Associated Press.

The aircraft disappeared after entering Egyptian airspace, according to EgyptAir. It vanished over the Mediterranean Sea at 37,000 feet, according to flight tracking services and EgyptAir.

Greek traffic controllers notified the airline that they’d lost contact with the plane, Ehab Mohy el-Deen, the head of Egypt’s navigation agency, told The New York Times.

“They did not radio for help or lose altitude,” he told the news organization. “They just vanished.”

The aircraft most likely crashed into the sea, Ihab Raslan, a spokesman for the Egyptian civil aviation authority, told SkyNews Arabia.

EgyptAir listed the nationalities of the passengers as: 30 Egyptians, 15 French, two Iraqis and one each from Sudan, Chad, Portugal, Algeria, Canada, Great Britain, Belgium, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.

The three-and-a-half hour flight left at 11:21 p.m. Paris time, more than half an hour after its scheduled departure of 10:45 p.m., according to the Flight Aware website. It was expected to arrive in Cairo at 2:55 a.m., 15 minutes after its scheduled arrival of 2:40 a.m., according to Flight Aware.

The airline said it would provide more details as they become available.

Back in March, EgyptAir Flight 181 en route to Cyprus was hijacked by a passenger claiming to be wearing a suicide belt. The hijacker surrendered at Larnaca International Airport in Cyprus and all passengers were released safely. No one was hurt in the incident, which Cypriot authorities said was not terrorism related.

EgyptAir operates from a hub at Cairo International Airport and is based in Heliopolis, Egypt. It offers passenger and freight services to more than 75 destinations.

On Wednesday, Secretary of State John Kerry traveled to Cairo and met with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to discuss “a range of bilateral and regional issues,” according to the State Department. The stop is part of a six-nation trip.

There are a number of terrorism organizations operating in Egypt, according to the State Department.

In January, Islamic State claimed responsibility for an attack on a hotel near the Pyramids of Giza, near Cairo. No one was hurt in the attack.

The state-owned Grootfontein Secondary School warned parents in a letter dated 16 May 2022 to be aware of the web pages “Chucky’s Cheese Restaurant” and “FNAF – Five Nights at Freddy” to ensure that their children are not exposed to them.

The letter read;

16 May 2022

RE: CHUCK’S CHEESE & FNAF

It is with great concern that we bring the following to your attention. We have noticed that some of our learners are acting strangely and out of character.

We learned that some of them came into contact with a terrible webpage called: Chucky’s Cheese Restaurant.

Here children interact with a demonic doll. At first, it is very entertaining and friendly, but after a while, the doll indoctrinates them, dares them and threatens them if they do not do certain things.

Daring them includes: strangle a friend, kill a teacher, burn your house, etc.

Chucky Cheese Restaurant was recently replaced by FNAF- Five Nights at Freddy, which is even worse.

These sites are already active in Namibia.

We urge you to please control what your child is watching on your phone, their own phone, tablets, laptops, etc.

We, as parents, are thinking they are playing an innocent game, but it is NOT. They are dared to even kill.

Please also inform your friends and other family members of this. Please contact our school Counselor with any enquiries or comments. tours faithfully.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam, a celebrity fetish priest, has expressed Ghanaians’ collective frustration with President Nana Akufo-Addo.

According to him, President Akufo-Addo will go to hell for deceiving Ghanaians and failing the people.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam said on Angel FM, where he pronounced the curses, that Akufo-Addo has failed to deliver on his promises to Ghanaians and is thus a sure candidate for Hell.

“You mentioned that we have the money yet are hungry. But now that you’ve joined the government, we’re even more hungry. We can’t afford to live comfortably, and our girlfriends are deserting us because we can’t afford to keep up,” he explained.

“The bible talks about lies, and the President lied, thus he will go to hell,” the fetish priest believes the President’s lies will send him to hell.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam expressed concern that Ghanaians were living in abject poverty, which had been exacerbated by poor governance and economic hardship.

As a result, he has placed the blame squarely on the shoulders of President Akufo-Addo, who he claims has failed to capitalize on the country’s resources in order to push Ghana to become a prosperous nation.
