From the BBC:
An EgyptAir plane has crashed near Tunis, the Tunisian news agency (TAP) reports.
The report did not say what type of plane had crashed, or how many people were on board.
The plane was on a short flight from the Egyptian capital Cairo to Tunis, a Tunisian Government official told the French news agency AFP.
The plane crashed as it was coming in to land, about six kilometres (four miles) from the Tunis-Carthage airport, TAP reported.
The control tower lost contact with the plane a few seconds earlier, just after a distress call from the pilot, the report said.
The weather was foggy and rainy at the time.
Eyewitnesses told Reuters that the plane hit a hillside and ambulances were rushing to the scene.
