Search teams zeroed in on the wreckage of EgyptAir flight MS804 Thursday after a French vessel picked up a signal from one of the crashed jet's black boxes.An Egyptian source on the investigation committee told Reuters the search zone for the crashed Airbus A320 had been reduced to a 2 km (1.24 miles) radius from 5 km. EgyptAir's chairman, Safwat Musallam, denied French media reports the aircraft had sent a series of technical warnings during flights to Asmara in Eritrea and Tunis in the 24 hours before it disappeared off radar screens and crashed.Without the black boxes, which lie in waters up to 9,840-feet (3,000 meters) deep, investigators do not have enough information to determine whether the airplane suffered a technical problem or was brought down deliberately.
