Human remains prove there was a blast aboard EgyptAir flight – Forensic official




An Egyptian Forensic official has informed that after thorough investigations were carried out on the human remains retrieved from the crashed EgyptAir flight, it was revealed that there was an explosion aboard the plane, although no traces of explosives have been found yet.

In arriving at that conclusion, the Forensic official based his assessment on the small size of body parts thus far recovered from the Mediterranean Sea, where EgyptAir plane crashed on Thursday.

“The size of the remains points towards an explosion, the biggest part was the size of a palm,” the forensics official said, adding that about 23 bags of body parts had been collected since Sunday.

However, another senior forensics official said only a tiny number of remains had arrived so far and it was too early to specify whether there had been an explosion aboard the plane.
