Human remains retrieved from the EgyptAir 804 crash site point to an explosion on board, an Egyptian forensic officials said today.
The official is part of the investigation team that has personally examined the body parts taken to a Cairo morgue.
He said all 80 pieces brought to the capital so far were small and that ‘there isn’t even a whole body part, like an arm or a head.’
The official, who declined to be named, said ‘the logical explanation is that it was an explosion’ that may have brought down the jet in the Mediterranean.
His assessment was backed up by the head of the Egyptian Forensic Medicine Authority.
Dr Hesham Abdel-Hamid told MailOnline the body parts recovered from the Mediterranean Sea had injuries consistent with an explosion.
