Egypt Says Signal Likely from EgyptAir Black Boxes Detected

A signal has been detected that is likely to be from one of the black boxes of the EgyptAir plane that crashed in the Mediterranean, Egypt said Wednesday.

SearchA signal has been detected that is likely to be from one of the black boxes of the EgyptAir plane that crashed in the Mediterranean, Egypt said Wednesday.

The signal was picked up by a French navy ship with acoustic detection systems searching for the wreckage of the Airbus A320 that went down with 66 people on board on May 19, the ministry of civil aviation said.

Another ship carrying robots that can dive to the seabed to recover the black boxes is due to arrive at the site within a week, it said.
