Now they're saying that it was ten miles inside Egyptian airspace (over the Mediterranean Sea) when it "disappeared." It was neither ascending nor descending at the time.

An expert is suggesting from the data that there was a security breach and midair explosion.

ADDED: It left Paris around 11 pm local time. Contact was lost about twenty minutes before the expected landing time at Cairo. It's now been missing about three hours.
