Egypt Releases First Images Of Recovered EgyptAir Plane Debris

The items include passenger belongings, parts of seats and life vests.

The Egyptian military on Saturday released images of the debris it has found from EgyptAir Flight MS804 that crashed into Mediterranean Sea. 

The recovered items include some of the belongings of the 66 passengers and crew from a dozen countries who were on board when the jet went down en route from Paris to Cairo early Thursday. Photos and video that Egypt's army provided also show plane wreckage with the EgyptAir logo, parts of seats and life vests.

French investigators said Saturday that the plane sent signals indicating that smoke was detected on board before it crashed. However, the cause of the disaster remains unknown.

Egyptian and international search teams are scouring the sea for the plane's black boxes, which contain cockpit voice recordings and data readings, along with the bulk of the jet's wreckage. Egyptian and Greek officials said earlier that crews had found some human remains believed to belong to passengers during the search.
