    CAIRO (Sputnik) — Forensic experts are examining debris of the the crashed EgyptAir flight MS804 in the Egyptian capital of Cairo, the investigative committee said in a statement Tuesday.

    On Thursday, the EgyptAir Airbus A320 disappeared from radar screens over the Mediterranean Sea, 10 miles into Egyptian airspace. The plane was heading to Cairo from Paris, carrying 66 people on board. The investigative committee to probe into the incident was formed on Friday.

    According to the statement, the committee's primary goal is to find the flight recorders and to retrieve human remains. The search zone has been divided into sectors between the French, Greek and Egyptian rescue teams.

    Earlier on Tuesday, a French member of the investigative committee said a terrorist attack could be a cause for the crash, but there was no certain information on that.
