EgyptAir crash wreckage spotted in Mediterranean

Egypt says it has spotted the wreckage of the EgyptAir plane that crashed into the Mediterranean last month, killing all 66 people on board.

The committee investigating the crash said in a statement that a vessel contracted by the Egyptian government to join the search efforts for the data recorders and the wreckage of the doomed A320 "had identified several main locations of the wreckage - accordingly the first images of the wreckage were provided to the investigation committee".

Based on the locations, the search team and investigators onboard the vessel will draw a map for the wreckage distribution spots, it added.

The plane disappeared from radar en route to Cairo from Paris.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
