Paris to Investigate EgyptAir Crash

Paris prosecutors have launched their own investigation into MS804, the missing EgyptAir flight is reported to have crashed in the Mediterranean with 15 French citizens on board, according to a statement issued Thursday. The Cairo flight departed from Charles de Gaulle Airport and never landed in Egypt. The probe “will begin by hearing statements from all those who came near the plane—the airport staff, baggage handlers who loaded the luggage inside the plane,” said Dominique Grizet, a specialist crime reporter for France’s BFMTV. “The lives of all those people who had anything to do with that plane which spent an hour in Roissy [Charles de Gaulle airport] will be delved into.”
