Tens of grieving EgyptAir pilots and cabin crew mourned in uniform Monday their fellow colleagues and passengers who died on an EgyptAir plane that crashed while en route from Paris to Cairo.

Egyptian Prime Minister Sherif Ismail, Aviation Minister Sherif Fathy and other ministers were among the attendees at the memorial service organised by EgyptAir in Al-Mosheer Tantawi Mosque in El-Tagammu El-Khames east of Cairo.

On Thursday, EgyptAir flight MS804 crashed over the Mediterranean with all 66 people on board believed to be dead.

Last Friday, several special prayers were held in mosques throughout Egypt to mourn the death of the victims.

Egypt's St Mark Cathedral also held a mass for the victims on Sunday.

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 aircraft's black boxes, which could give investigators crucial clues to the cause of the crash, are yet to be located.
