A French ship has picked up deep sea signals, thought to be from the black boxes of an EgyptAir jet that crashed last month.

Egypt's Civil Aviation Ministry says the vessel detected the signals while searching the Mediterranean Sea, where the plane is believed to have crashed.

There were 66 passengers and crew on board.
