First Funeral Of EgyptAir Jet Crash Victim

The funeral has taken place of an air stewardess who died when EgyptAir flight MS804 crashed into the Mediterranean.
Hundreds of family and friends of Yara Hani Tawfik gathered at St Mary and St Athanasius Church in Cairo on Sunday morning.
The mourners included her mother, grandmother and cousins.
One cousin, Nader Medhat, told Sky News: “I got the news like everyone, I saw her picture on television, I got shocked but I thought that she did something good, maybe she got promoted.
“Then I discovered about the accident. I couldn’t believe what had happened and I still can’t.”
Another cousin, Merlin Medhat, said: “I couldn’t imagine that one day I would feel the grief of losing a cousin in such an accident.”
Flight MS804 came down at 2.45am local time on Thursday while carrying 66 passengers and crew from Paris to Cairo.
The sea and air search for wreckage is continuing, with the Egyptian investigation committee saying it is still “too early” to make judgements over the reason behind the crash.
