can’t “rule out” any pos­si­bil­ity when asked whether a ter­ror­ist at­tack is be­hind the miss­ing plane. He said there was no “dis­tress call” but there was a “sig­nal” re­ceived from the plane. The avi­a­tion of­fi­cials later said the plane crashed and that a search for de­bris was now un­der­way.

The “pos­si­bil­ity that the plane crashed has been con­firmed,” as the plane hasn’t landed in any of the nearby air­ports, said the of­fi­cials, who spoke on con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause they were not au­tho­rised to speak to the me­dia. The of­fi­cial said a sig­nal had been picked up from the plane two hours af­ter it dis­ap­peared from radar, thought to have been an emer­gency bea­con.—AF/PAP
