The committee investigating the crash said in a statement that a vessel contracted by the Egyptian government to join the search efforts for the data recorders and the wreckage of the doomed A320 "had identified several main locations of the wreckage - accordingly the first images of the wreckage were provided to the investigation committee".

Based on the locations, the search team and investigators onboard the vessel will draw a map for the wreckage distribution spots, it added.

The plane disappeared from radar en route to Cairo from Paris. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
