CAIRO (AP) — The first photographs have emerged of debris of EgyptAir flight 804, which crashed into the Mediterranean on its way to Cairo from Paris, killing all 66 people on board.
The Egyptian military posted the photos Saturday on its spokesman’s Facebook page. They appear to show the heavily-damaged remains of plane seats, life jackets — one of which is seemingly undamaged — and a scrap of cloth that looks to be part of a baby’s blanket or sleeping bag.
The Egyptian military announced Friday that it had found debris in the eastern Mediterranean, around 180 miles (290 kilometers) north of Alexandria.
