egyptair-debrisHuman remains have been retrieved from EgyptAir Flight MS804 which was set off from Paris to Cairo and is believed to have crashed point to an explosion on board.

 

 

A forensic official, part of Egypt’s investigative team examined the victim’s remains at a morgue in Cairo and suggested that there was an explosion on board that may have brought down the aircraft in the east Mediterranean.

The official, who is part of the Egyptian team investigating the crash that killed all 66 people on board the flight from Paris to Cairo early, last Thursday, has personally examined the remains at a Cairo morgue. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information. 80 body parts has been received so far and an explosion is the only logical explanation that supports the evidences. There has been no confirmed cause of the disaster, which killed all 66 passengers and crew on board the flight on its journey from Paris to Cairo.

 

Family members of the victims arrived Tuesday at the Cairo morgue forensics’ department and DNA samples were collected to determine the authenticity of the evidences.

 

The last minute automatic messages were sent minutes before the plane disappeared from radar and indicated problems with the cockpit windows, smoke on board, autopilot and the flight control system. Body parts, luggage and passengers’ belongings have been recovered alongside wreckage from the aircraft during searches of the Mediterranean Sea. However, the location of the main body of the Airbus A230, complete with its “black boxes” and their vital data, remains unknown.

 

Greece’s defence minister claimed that he plane swerved and rapidly lost altitude before it disappeared from radar however, an Egpytian official disagreed to this point. Egyptian authorities previously said they believe terrorism is a more likely explanation than equipment failure but so far no hard evidence has emerged and no group has claimed responsibility.

 

Britain, Cyprus, France, Greece and the United States are actively involved in the search mission for the debris from the aircraft.
