EgyptAir wreckage found in Mediterranean

20 May 2016, 13:27

Cario - Egypt's military said its search teams found wreckage on Friday from the EgyptAir plane that crashed in the Mediterranean with 66 people on board.

"Egyptian aircraft and navy vessels have found personal belongings of passengers and parts of the wreckage 290 km north of Alexandria," its spokesperson said on his Facebook page.

The search intensified on Friday, a day after Egypt's aviation minister said a "terrorist" attack would be a more likely scenario than a technical failure.

The airline has said the search was no longer a rescue operation, but a recovery.

When the debris from EgyptAir Flight MS804 is brought ashore it will be examined by air crash investigators from several different countries.

The officials say that the chief Egyptian investigator Ayman el-Mokadam will be joined by French and British investigators as well as an expert from AirBus to look over the debris.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to speak to the press.

The Egyptian presidency has expressed its "deep sadness and extreme regret" over the deaths of the 66 passengers and crew members aboard EgyptAir Flight 804. The statement is the first official recognition of the tragic crash of the missing plane.

EgyptAir have confirmed the find on their official Twitter account:
