The John Lethbridge, a French research vessel equipped with an underwater robot, identified several locations of wreckage and has provided the Egyptian investigative committee with initial images, the Egyptian Aircraft Accident Investigation Committee said.

The Egyptian investigation committee said that investigators on board a search vessel in the area would now draw up a map of the wreckage distribution spots because several main locations of the wreckage had been identified.

Egyptian officials have said the plane disappeared off radar at a cruising altitude of about 37,000 feet while en route from Paris to Cairo. They said this week that they had received Egyptian military radar images confirming that it deviated from its planned course and turned a full circle before disappearing.
