Egypt enlisted a submersible Sunday to search the Mediterranean seabed for the black boxes of EgyptAir MS804, hoping the recorders would determine whether the plane crash was an accident or attack.Sisi said a submersible that can operate 3,000 metres (9,800) below sea level had been enlisted from the oil ministry, and urged against speculation on why the plane went down.The message may have been recorded before the EgyptAir disaster.Experts have warned that the equipment could be useless if the black boxes -- which can emit signals for up to five weeks -- have sunk to a depth of more than 2,000 metres (6,500 feet).French and Egyptian aviation officials have said it is too soon determine what brought down the plane.The plane had turned sharply twice before plunging 6,700 metres (22,000 feet) and vanishing from radar screens early Thursday, Greek Defence Minister Panos Kammenos said.
