Egypt's top prosecutor called on Monday his French counterpart to ask for any video footage of EgyptAir flight MS804 – which later crashed in the Mediterranean – during its stay in Charles de Gaulle Airport, a statement from the prosecutor's office read.

The prosecutor also asked for any recording of communications between the plane's pilot and French air traffic controllers.

The Egyptian prosecutor also sent a request to Greek authorities for all their information on the accident; from a possible distress call to all records of communications between the pilot and Greek air traffic controllers.

The plane passed through Greece on its way to Cairo International Airport.

The flight crashed in the Mediterranean on Thursday, with all 66 people on board believed to be dead.

The Egyptian military located debris, personal belongings, plane seats and human remains in the Mediterranean on Friday near the spot where the plane vanished from radar.

The reason behind the crash has not been determined. The black boxes are yet to be located.
