Egyp­tair crash: Flight MS804 bod­ies are re­cov­ered

Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS -

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”.
