Official: Beacon thought to be from EgyptAir plane located

Ayman al-Moqadem, the chief Egyptian investigator into the crash, told reporters that a signal was picked up from the plane. He said that finding the beacon narrowed the search for the black boxes to a 3 mile radius. Finding the black boxes required highly sophisticated technology, he added.
