A regional risk expert published a grim assessment of how the U.S. economy would fair after a crippling solar storm.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta eyed up an extreme but perhaps not unlikely hypothetical scenario this week: What would happen to the U.S. economy if a "massive geomagnetic solar storm" crippled the domestic power grid, potentially for a "long, long time"?

EgyptAir airliner ‘apparently’ brought down by terror attack – Russia’s security chief

EgyptAir flight MS804 was travelling between Paris and Cairo when it vanished from radar.

A terror attack could be the reason for the EgyptAir crash, Aleksandr Bortnikov, head of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB), has said.

"Unfortunately, today there was another incident with an Egyptian Airlines plane. Apparently, it is a terrorist attack, which killed 66 people from 12 countries,” Bortnikov was cited as saying by TASS.

The FSB chief urged "all concerned parties, including our partners in Europe, to undertake joint measures to identify the persons involved in this heinous act."

Egypt’s Aviation Minister Sherif Fathy has told journalists that the missing plane is more likely to have been brought down by a terrorist attack than a technical failure.

“If you analyze the situation properly the possibility of having a terror attack is higher than the possibility of having a technical [problem]," he said.

An EgyptAir flight en route from Paris to Cairo has gone missing on Thursday with 56 passengers and 10 crewmembers on board.

While a search and rescue operation is under way, authorities and experts say no scenario can be ruled out, including terrorism.
