20 May 2016
The Sentinel-1A radar satellite has detected a potential oil slick in the eastern Mediterranean Sea - in the same area where EgyptAir flight MS804 disappeared early yesterday morning on its way from Paris to Cairo.
The image was acquired by Sentinel-1A yesterday at 16:00 GMT (18:00 CEST).
ESA has given information related to the image to the relevant authorities to support the search operations.
