The MS804 flight travelling from Paris to Cairo carried 40 Egyptians, 15 French people, two Iraqis, two Canadians and one passenger from each of Algeria, Belgium, Britain, Chad, Portugal, Saudi Arabia and Sudan.

Egypt's top prosecutor said in a statement Monday that the Egyptian investigation into the crash of EgyptAir Flight 804 is still underway.

The BEA said the crew could be heard discussing a fire on the cockpit voice recorder and that the plane's automatic ACARS messaging system had flagged up smoke on board.

French air safety investigator BEA assisted with the safety investigation and on Friday released a statement outlining its cockpit fire theory and criticizing the Egyptians for failing to continue the safety investigation.

Croatia vs. England - Football Match Preview
Victory would see them return to the same venue to face either France or Belgium in the final. But he is certainly well aware of the threat that Croatia pose in the centre of the field.

The BEA also pointed to a signal from an emergency locator transmitter sent around eight minutes after the last transmission from the plane and data from Greek primary radar that the Egyptair aircraft descended in a turn before hitting the water.

French investigators had always leaned towards a mechanical fault as the cause of the crash, saying they suspected a mobile phone or tablet on the aircraft had caught fire.

In a press conference on the day of the crash, Egypt's civil aviation minister Sherif Fathy said a terrorist attack was most likely behind the crash.

Officials recovered flight recorders that were analyzed two months after the crash because advanced fix work was needed first, the new report from investigators with France's Bureau of Enquiry and Analysis for Civil Aviation Safety, known as BEA said. The investigation was then transferred to the country's judicial authorities who told the BEA that the crash was the result of a "malicious act" but have not yet produced a final report. But a source close to the French investigation previously said no such traces were found by the team.
