EgyptAir crash: Debris found from flight MS804

Debris and body parts have been found in the Mediterranean Sea by teams searching for a doomed EgyptAir plane, Greek and Egyptian officials say.
Flight MS804 was en route from Paris to Cairo with 66 passengers and crew when it crashed early on Thursday.
Items including seats and luggage have also been retrieved by Egyptian search crews.
The debris was discovered about 290km (180 miles) north of Alexandria, the Egyptian military said.
European Space Agency satellites spotted an oil slick in the area where the flight went missing but the organisation said there was no guarantee it was from the plane.
The search is now focused on finding the plane's flight recorders, the Associated Press news agency reports.
There were smoke alerts from the onboard toilet and the plane's electrics shortly before the signal was lost, according to data published on air industry website the Aviation Herald .
However, there has been no independent confirmation.
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has expressed his "utmost sadness and regret" at the crash.
