See why investigators speculate these jihadis may have been responsible for the attack. Makes you wonder if any other pre-planned attacks are going to occur, if the investigators are in fact correct.
The ISIS jihadis behind the Paris attacks stopped off at Charles De Gaulle airport just hours before carrying out their deadly massacre last November.
The four man terror team visited the airport at 6:20pm on 13 November. An hour later they left the airport and went on to murder 130 people on the streets of Paris.
‘It is feared the jihads were coordinating with comrades at the airport. Anti-terrorist judges are today interrogating Abdeslam about his links with staff at Charles de Gaulle [airport],’ a police source told The Sun.
The news comes as investigators uncovered the first pieces of the wreckage including life jackets and shoes. They also confirmed smoke was detected in multiple places on EgyptAir flight 804 moments before it plummeted into the Mediterranean.
The cause of the crash that killed all 66 on board remains unclear but smoke alarms were sounding for almost three minutes before it began its rapid descent, according to the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) data.
Agency spokesman Sebastien Barthe confirmed the new findings ‘generally mean the start of a fire,’ but insisted that everything is currently ‘pure conjecture.’
The new information suggests that a fire on board the EgyptAir plane is a more likely reason for the crash than a bomb, although experts have not ruled out the use of an ‘incendiary device’.
While Egyptian officials continue saying that they suspect terrorism, no group has yet come forward to claim credit as theories as to the cause of the crash continue to circulate.
It comes as hundreds of mourners gathered to offer prayers for the 66 passengers and crew killed in the EgyptAir disaster.
The leaked data was filed through the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS), a data link for sending messages between planes and ground facilities.
An ACARS screen grab published by air industry website The Aviation Herald shows time stamps that appear to match the time the aircraft lost contact with controllers.
According to the leaked data, smoke alarms in the lavatory behind the cockpit first began sounding at 00.26GMT. Less than a minute later, smoke was also detected in the avionics [electronics].
The final two alerts from the plane indicate faults with the FCU – the flight control unit used by the pilot to input instructions into the flight computer – and the SEC 3 – the computer that controls the plane’s spoilers and elevator computers.
