EgyptAir Crash: Human Remains Indicate Terror Blast

An official says the “logical explanation” is that an explosion brought Flight 804 down, as body parts are examined.


An Egyptian forensic official says human remains from the crashed EgyptAir flight indicate there had been an explosion on board.

The official is part of the Egyptian investigative team and has personally examined the remains at a Cairo morgue.

He said all 80 pieces brought to Cairo so far are small and that “there isn’t even a whole body part, like an arm or a head”.

The official added that “the logical explanation is that it was an explosion” but no traces of explosives have been found.

However, another forensics official said only a tiny number of remains had arrived so far and it was too early to specify whether there had been a bomb on board.

All 66 people on the plane were killed when the Airbus 320 crashed in the Mediterranean on 19 May while en route from Paris to Cairo.

Egypt’s president said on Sunday a submarine had been deployed in the hunt for Flight 804’s black boxes.

The aircraft came down at 2.45am south of the Greek island of Karpathos and north of the Egyptian coast.
