Black boxes and debris from EgyptAir flight 804 reportedly located

Egypt's military displayed wreckage and personal belongings found in the search for EgyptAir Flight 804 as searchers scoured the Mediterranean Sea on Saturday for the aircraft's flight data and cockpit voice recorders.

The chunks of debris included an uninflated life vest, a seat, a purse, shoes, carpet, a scarf, parts of chairs and cushions, and a sling bag.
The EgyptAir label appeared on one piece of wreckage.
On Friday, EgyptAir and Greek officials said that searchers found seats, suitcases and personal belongings.
Greek Defense Minister Panos Kammenos relayed the Egyptian discovery of a body part. The Egyptian military said it found debris about 290 kilometers (180 miles) north of Alexandria, Egypt.
No survivors have been found. Egyptian officials have said they suspect the crash was caused by an act of terror, but no group has come forward to claim credit.
 
French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault told passengers' families Saturday that "no theory" has been ruled out.
The Airbus A320 carried 56 passengers and 10 crew members and security when it left Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris late Wednesday headed for Cairo.
Most of the passengers were Egyptian -- 30 in all.
Also aboard were 15 French citizens, including an infant, and passengers from Iraq, Britain, Belgium, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Chad, Portugal, Canada and Algeria, according to Sharif Fathi, Egypt's aviation minister.
