Human remains recovered from crash site of EgyptAir flight 804 point to an explosion on board the plane, a senior Egyptian forensic official told the Associated Press.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he isn’t authorized to release the information told the Associated Press, all 80 pieces brought to Cairo so far are small and that “there isn’t even a whole body part, like an arm or a head.”

“The logical explanation is that it was an explosion,” he added.

The forensic official is part of the Egyptian investigative team who has examined the recovered remains at a Cairo mortuary.
