Egypt’s military displayed wreckage and personal belongings found in the search for EgyptAir Flight 804 as searchers scoured the Mediterranean Sea on Saturday for the aircraft’s flight data and cockpit voice recorders.
The chunks of debris included an uninflated life vest, a seat, a purse, shoes, carpet, a scarf, parts of chairs and cushions, and a sling bag. The EgyptAir label appeared on one piece of wreckage.
“The search is ongoing. It has uncovered initial pieces of the aircraft, body parts, belongings of the deceased, and it will continue hopefully until we can ascertain exactly where the plane has gone down,” Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry told CNN’s Becky Anderson.
Shoukry said the searchers are pressing on but it isn’t clear how long it will take to recover the cockpit voice and flight data recorders to find out what happened. More photos below…
