Egypt says black boxes of crashed plane arrive in Paris

CAIRO (AP) — Egyptian investigators on Monday said the black boxes from a passenger plane that crashed last month have arrived in Paris, where technicians will attempt to repair them.

Both devices were extensively damaged when EgyptAir Flight 804 from Paris to Cairo crashed into the Mediterranean on May 19, killing all 66 people on board and Egyptian investigators were unable to download information from the recorders.

The Egyptian investigating committee said in a statement that the "electronic boards" of both the cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder were flown to France.

It remains unclear what caused the crash. The pilots made no distress call, and no group has claimed to have brought down the aircraft.
