The Islamic State issued a chilling threat to ‘kill France’ just days before Egyptair flight MS804 from Paris vanished with 66 people on board. Only days before the disappearance, ISIS gave a murderous warning to France in an online video.
“In France is the land of the Cross and Kufr. A Christian read the Quran and say the light.”
The message gives no other clues and seems to give a hint that a convert joined ISIS and was ready to give punishment to the French. Although most of the casualties are Muslim Egyptians, this threat has not been confirmed to link to the crash yet as investigation of the crash continues.
Jean-Paul Troadec, the former chief of the BEA national investigation unit, said there was a “strong possibility” the plane disappeared due to a suicide bomber.
Speaking to Europe 1 radio station in Paris, he said: “There’s a strong possibility of an explosion on board from a bomb or a suicide bomber.
“The idea of a technical accident when weather conditions were good, seems almost possible but not that likely.
“We could also consider a missile, which is what happened to the Malaysia Airlines aircraft in July 2014.”
Panos Kammenos said data retrieved on Egyptair flight MS804 shows the stricken plane made a 90 degree left hand turn then spiralled 360 degrees to the right as it dropped 22,000 feet.
He said: “At 3.39am the course of the aircraft was south and south-east of Kassos and Karpathos (islands)…immediately after it entered Cairo FIR and made swerves and a descent I describe; 90 degrees left and then 360 degrees to the right.”
This only explains a chaos, a plane spiraling as it plunged which gives credence that either a bomb or a suicide bomber or a scuffle caused the crash.
