CAIRO: The Egyptian Aircraft Accident Investigation Committee said on Thursday that the cockpit voice recorder of crashed EgyptAir flight MS804 has been recovered but found damaged.

"The device has been recovered in several stages as it was found damaged, but the vessel managed to salvage the part containing the memory unit, which is the most important in the voice recorder," Xinhua news agency quoted the investigation committee as saying in a statement.
