Forensic expert: Human remains in EgyptAir crash have burns

Posted:
CAIRO (AP) -

A senior Egyptian forensics official says human remains recovered from the crash site of EgyptAir Flight 804 have burns on them and are "very tiny," which suggests an explosion may have taken place in midair on board the aircraft.

The official is on the Egyptian forensic team and has personally examined the remains, kept at a Cairo morgue. He spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to release the information.

He says the body parts are "so tiny" and that at least one piece of a human arm has signs of burns -- an indication it might have "belonged to a passenger sitting next to the explosion."

All 66 people on board the flight from Paris to Cairo were killed in crash, which still remains a mystery.
