Evidence of an explosion on Egyptair Flight 804

- (AP) -- A senior Egyptian forensics official says human remains retrieved from the crash site of EgyptAir flight 804 suggest there was an explosion on board that may have brought down the aircraft.

The official is part of the Egyptian investigative team and has personally examined the remains at a Cairo morgue.

He says all 80 pieces brought to Cairo so far are small and that "there isn't even a whole body part, like an arm or a head." The official adds that "the logical explanation is that it was an explosion."

All 66 people on board were killed when the Airbus 320 crashed in the Mediterranean early Thursday while on its way from Paris to Cairo.
