Remains of Jet Crash Victims Returned
The first remains of Egyptian victims of EgyptAir Flight 990 arrived home more than a year after the plane, bound from New York to Cairo, crashed into the Atlantic. Among them were the remains of co-pilot Gamil Batouty, who U.S. authorities suggested put the jet into its dive. Officials at Cairo airport confirmed the return of 33 sets of remains. The Oct. 31, 1999, crash off the coast of Nantucket, Mass., killed all 217 aboard. The return of remains had been delayed by paperwork and difficulty in identifying victims.
