Greek Defense Staff won’t verify EgyptAir jet crashed near Karpathos Island

The Hellenic National Defense General Staff said Thursday it was unable to confirm that EgyptAir flight MS804 crashed near the Greek island of Karpathos, as no debris had been found.

Answering a question whether the General Staff had any information regarding what they had found, the press office said, “We don’t have. We are waiting from the coast guard. Until now we did not find anything.”

Earlier media reports, citing a Greek civil aviation source, suggested that the EgyptAir plane had crashed near Karpathos. The Hellenic National Defense General Staff denied the information.
