Officials from several countries are searching for an Egyptian passenger plane that went missing over the Mediterranean early Thursday. The Swedish Foreign Ministry said it has no information on whether Swedes were on board.

The EgyptAir flight MS804, which was en route from Paris to Cairo, disappeared from radar screens some 280 km off the Egyptian coastline. The plane was carrying 56 passengers and 10 crew members.

News agency AFP reports that 30 passengers were Egyptians, 15 were French and 10 had other nationalities, no of which were from Sweden.

Speaking with news agency TT, a spokesman with the Swedish Foreign Ministry said it had has no information if any of the passengers on board were Swedish.

"We're following the media developments now and have nothing else to go on at this early stage," Mats Samuelsson from the ministry said.
