Doomed EgyptAir plane's black box FOUND as harrowing photos emerge of wreckage

Egypt's military on Saturday released images of wreckage and personal belongings as search continued for flight data and cockpit voice recorders belonging to an EgyptAir plane that crashed in the Mediterranean Sea.

The Egyptian petroleum ministry dispatched a submarine to the Mediterranean to aid in the search for the "black box" recorders from the Airbus A320 jet, which are believed to have sunk to the sea floor since the crash Thursday morning.

The Oil Ministry's submarine is capable of operating almost two miles deep where the plane went down in the Mediterranean Sea about 180 miles from the Egyptian coast. Egyptian Prime Minister Sherif Ismail said on Thursday that he does not rule out terrorism or any other factor, but no militant group has claimed responsibility for the crash as yet.

Sinai Province, the Egyptian affiliate of Islamic State, had immediately claimed the downing of a Russian passenger jet over Sinai in October, killing all 224 aboard.

Beside Egypt, ships and planes from Britain, Cyprus, France, Greece and the United States are taking part searching a wide area of sea 180 miles (290 kilometers) north of the Egyptian port city of Alexandria.
