A French naval ship ended the search for the remains of an EgyptAir jet that crashed in the Mediterranean, after another specialised undersea search vessel in the area located wreckage.

A French Navy official said on Thursday that the Laplace has finished its mission in agreement with Egyptian authorities.

The Laplace detected signals from one of the plane's flight recorders last month.

Another ship, the John Lethbridge, operated by US company Deep Ocean Search, arrived on Sunday. Egyptian authorities said on Wednesday the ship had spotted and obtained images from the wreckage under water.

The Paris-Cairo flight crashed between the Greek island of Crete and the Egyptian coast on May 19, killing all 66 people aboard. The cause of the crash remains unclear.
