French Probe Reportedly Finds Traces of TNT in Debris of Downed EgyptAir Flight
CAIRO (Sputnik) — On Friday, the French Le Figaro newspaper reported that experts from the Forensic Sciences Institute of the French Gendarmerie (IRCGN) have found traces of the explosive material TNT on the debris of the crashed plane. The experts, who traveled to Cairo last week, were not allowed to investigate the debris in detail though.

"The commission investigating the Egyptian aircraft crash in the Mediterranean Sea in May this year hasn't received so far any data either from the judicial examination, or from the general prosecutor's office that would indicate the presence of traces of explosives on the debris," Bassem Sami said, as quoted by the Youm 7 news portal.

The commission continues to investigate the causes of the crash, and is ready to announce any results as soon as new information is available, he added.

The EgyptAir Airbus A320 plane disappeared from radar screens over the Mediterranean Sea, 10 miles into the Egyptian airspace, on May 19. The plane, carrying 66 people, was heading to Cairo from Paris.
