Egypt’s submarine has been sent to search, and the UK, France, Greece, Cyprus, and the US have joined the search. Body parts, debris, and luggage from the flight have been found.

The black boxes are believed to be lying in up to 4000 meters of water. The Egyptian Navy’s ROV submarine can only dive to a maximum depth of 3,200 meters.
