More human remains recovered from EgyptAir crash site
More human remains have been recovered from the EgyptAir plane crash site in the Mediterranean, a research committee says.
Egypt’s Aircraft Accident Investigation Committee said in a statement on Sunday that a search vessel “retrieved all the human remains that were mapped at the crash location.”
The remains were taken to the port of Alexandria to be examined before being sent on to the capital Cairo for DNA analysis, the committee said.
The number of victims that can be identified by the retrieved body parts is still unclear.
The vessel will return to the crash location “to conduct a new thorough scan of the seabed and to search for any human remains,” it added.
On May 19, the Airbus A320 mysteriously crashed in the eastern Mediterranean en route from Paris to Cairo and all 66 people on board were killed. The cause of the crash still remains unknown.
