Crash investigators start examining Egyptair black box


Investigators have started analysing the cockpit voice recorder from an EgyptAir plane that crashed in the Mediterranean Sea last month, killing all 66 people on board.

An official said on Friday that the so-called “black box” arrived in Cairo from the crash site overnight.

The EgyptAir Airbus A320 was en route to Cairo from Paris when it crashed between the Greek island of Crete and the Egyptian coast on May 19.

Officials said the recorder – one of two on board the plane – has been damaged but that the vessel searching for the wreckage managed to safely recover the memory unit.
