EgyptAir Crash Bodies RecoveredEgyptAir Crash Bodies 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 seafloor, 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, BBC reported. The vessel will return to the crash location after delivering the remains in Alexandria “to conduct a new thorough scan of the seabed and to search for any [more] human remains”, the committee said. It said Egyptian and French forensic doctors on board the vessel oversaw the body recovery process. The remains are due to be examined by prosecutors and forensic specialists in Alexandria before going to Cairo for DNA analysis. The committee said on Saturday that the memory chips from the airliner’s black box voice recorders are not damaged and investigators should be able to make use of them.
