French President Francois Hollande and his Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah al-Sisi have "agreed to cooperate closely" to establish the circumstances of the disappearance as soon as possible, Paris said.

The Egyptian military said it had deployed search aircraft and naval vessels to scour the Mediterranean for signs of the missing Airbus A320.

An EgyptAir official said the search was focused on an area of sea north of the Egyptian coast, without providing a precise location.
