Egypt's tourism minister Yehia Rashed met on Sunday with the families of the victims of the Thursday crash of EgyptAir flight MS804 over the Mediterranean.

Rashed, along with EgyptAir chairman Hesham El-Nahas, offered condolences to relatives of the deceased.

All 66 people on board the Cairo-bound flight coming from Paris are believed to have died when the plane crashed over the Mediterranean Sea.

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.
