Recovered debris of the EgyptAir jet that crashed in the Mediterranean Sea are seen in this still image taken from videoHuman remains retrieved from the crashed EgyptAir flight suggest that there was an explosion on board the plane, although no traces of explosives have been detected, an Egyptian forensics official and investigation sources said on Tuesday. The official based his assessment on the small size of body parts so far recovered from the Mediterranean Sea, where EgyptAir flight 804 crashed on Thursday. “The size of the remains points towards an explosion, the biggest part was the size of a palm,” the forensics official said, adding that about 23 bags of body parts had been collected since Sunday.

Carney said the outcome of the June 23 referendum could require the Bank to make a big reassessment to how it sets interest rates, something it needed to explain to businesses and households. The BoE has angered campaigners who want Britain to leave the EU by talking of the risk of a sharp slowdown in economic growth and a rise in inflation.

A riot police officer stands in front of refugees and migrants during the evacuation of a makeshift camp at the border at the Greek-Macedonian border near the village of Idomeni, on May 24, 2016Hundreds of Greek police on Tuesday began clearing the overcrowded Idomeni camp, a migrant flashpoint on the Macedonia border where thousands have been living in squalid conditions for more than three months. Most media were kept at a distance, but footage and images handed out by state TV ERT and state agency ANA, who were allowed access, showed migrants queueing up to board buses and being driven away, some of them waving at the camera. Many of the migrants are fleeing war, persecution and poverty in the Middle East and Asia.
