Cairo- The mystery obscuring the last twenty minutes of the Egypt air flight A320, which crashed on its return flight to Cairo last Thursday, coming from the Charles de Gaulle Airport, Paris, raised suspicions and stirred different projections as to how the ill-fated flight had come to its end.

Egyptian officials are at large disappointed after French media reports highlighted hypotheses on technical malfunction or human error, while completely neglecting the possibility the plane crash being an act of terrorism. Egyptian and western search parties are saving no effort on finding the two flight recorders of A320.

An official in the Egyptian civil aircraft ministry said that any scenario being generalized before procuring the flight recorders would translate into an attempt of twisting the truth.

“We have nothing to hide or to base our hypothesis on, and we hope that this convinces everyone,” said the official.
