Our penultimate program of the academic year kicks off right now.I'm Carl Azuz.It's good to see you this Thursday.

First up, a new clue in the mysterious disappearance of a passenger plane over the Mediterranean Sea.EgyptAir Flight 804 vanished on May 19.Several countries have been involved in the search for the plane.But so far, they found only debris.There have been more questions than answers.Yesterday, though, investigators said that a French navy ship detected signals from one of the plane's flight data recorders.With information about the plane's airspeed, altitude, engine status and wing positions, the so-called "black box" could hold the answers as to what exactly cause the aircraft to crash.And it helps investigators narrow down the area of the Mediterranean where they're searching.But the flight recorders only give out signals for about 30 days after they get wet.So, officials are in the race against time.

This is a huge breakthrough in the investigation of EgyptAir Flight 804, which two weeks ago was traveling from Paris to Cairo when it disappeared from radar.There had been a massive search underway.Pieces of debris had been recovered as well, as body parts.It was the French naval ship La Place which located the signal from one of the black boxes.They haven't been able to locate the other black box yet.Another ship will be coming within a week, which has sophisticated means to recover the wreckage from the sea floor, which could be at depths of 3,000 meter.That's 10,000 feet.Once those black boxes are recovered, they will be analyzed.Hopefully, they haven't been damaged by the crash.And once they are analyzed here in Cairo, investigators hope it will give them some insight into what exactly happened on that plane.They're also hoping that with the recovery of the black boxes, that they'll able to recover the fuselage, another clue, another piece of evidence which will help investigators, also for the families, 66 people died in this crash.The families are hoping this news will also help in retrieving their loved ones so they can give them a proper burial.Ian Lee, in Cairo.

The U.S. State Department, which oversees the country's foreign affairs, is warning Americans about travelling to Europe.It says the large number of tourists who visit the continent over the summer could possibly be targets for terrorists, especially at large public events.We reported earlier this week how terrorists are trying to sneak into Europe among the scores of migrants and refugees going there.And a French intelligence official recently told CNN that police don't think they've arrested everyone involved in recent terrorist attacks in Paris, France, and Brussels, Belgium.
