    Wreckage of crashed EgyptAir found in Mediterranean

    June 16, Cairo: Wreckage of the EgyptAir flight that went missing over the Mediterranean last month has been found, reports said.

    According to statement by Egyptian investigators, "several main locations of the wreckage" had been identified.

    A deep sea search vessel had also sent back the first images of the wreckage, the statement added.

    The flight MS804 was crashed with 66 people on board on 19 May while flying from Paris to Cairo.

    The Airbus A320 plane vanished from Greek and Egyptian radar screens, apparently without having sent a distress call.

    The Egyptian investigation committee said that investigators on board the John Lethbridge search vessel, which has been contracted by the
    Egyptian government, would now draw up a map of the wreckage distribution, media reports said.

    Earlier this month, search teams said signals from one of the "black box" flight recorders had been detected.

    Experts have warned that signals emitted by the recorders are expected to expire by 24 June.

    The cause of the crash remains a mystery.
