Cause of jet crash still up in the air
Human remains hint at sinister end to doomed plane
The EgyptAir passenger jet that crashed last week may have indeed been the target of a terrorist attack after human remains from the passenger jet suggest there was an explosion on board.
An anonymous official, who is part of the Egyptian investigative team, told world media that he had personally examined remains recovered from the crash site.
The source said all 80 pieces brought to Cairo so far are small human fragments. He said: “The logical explanation is that it was an explosion”.
He also added: “There isn’t even a whole body part, like an arm or a head.”
However Egypt’s head of forensics later denounced the reports as “completely false.”
An Egyptian aviation spokesperson has said Egyptian officials did not observe the EgyptAir flight swerve or change direction before it disappeared.
The Airbus A320 had 66 people on board, including one British man Richard Osman who had recently celebrated being a father for the second time.
The plane was en route from Paris to Cairo with when it vanished from radar early on Thursday 19th May.
Greece's defence minister said the plane turned 90 degrees, before plummeting into the sea after turning 360-degrees.
Neither EgyptAir nor the Ministry of Civil Aviation have commented on the plane's final movements.
