The pilot's cigarette is likely to blame for the plane disaster that killed 66 people

According to French specialists' conclusions included in documents released on Wednesday

An EgyptAir disaster in 2016 in the Mediterranean that killed 66 people was likely caused by a fire that originated in the cockpit.

According to a 134-page dossier reviewed by Italian daily Il Corriere della Sera and handed to the Paris court of appeal in March.

A leak from the co-oxygen pilot's mask and the burning of a cigarette smoked by the pilot or co-pilot were the causes of these incidents.

Initially, Egypt's aviation minister claimed that a terrorist attack, not a lack of maintenance, was more likely to have brought the plane down.

The jet crash was investigated as a manslaughter case once terrorism was ruled out.
