Egyptair crash: Flight MS804 bodies are recovered
A search vessel looking for the remains of victims of the Egyptair plane that crashed into the Mediterranean in May has recovered all of the mapped bodies from the sea floor, investigators say.
The Mauritian-based ship John Lethbridge is now sailing to Alexandria in Egypt. It will later return to the crash site to look for more bodies. The flight from Paris to Cairo crashed on 19 May, killing all 66 on board. The cause of the crash remains unknown.
A statement by the Egyptian Aircraft Accident Investigation Committee said that the search vessel John Lethbridge “retrieved all the human remains that were mapped at the crash location”.
