    There is some doubt whether the wreckage found belongs to the flight:

    EgyptAir: Authorities recover debris as further details emerge
    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-36349021

    The plane's warning system sent communications about overheating near the cockpit (some indication about window heating) and in an avionics bay underneath the cockpit, and smoke in the lavatory, apparently by the cockpit, then computer systems fail. (30 s to 1 m 20 s in video)

    CBS reports progress in locating the flight recorders, aka 'black boxes'.
