By Amina Ismail and Lin Noueihed CAIRO (Reuters) - The head of Egypt's forensics authority dismissed as premature a suggestion on Tuesday that the small size of the body parts retrieved since an EgyptAir plane crashed last week indicated there was an explosion on board. Investigators struggling to work out why the Airbus 320 jet vanished from radar screens last Thursday, with 66 passengers and crew on board, are looking for clues in the human remains and debris recovered from the Mediterranean Sea so far.
By David Milliken and Huw Jones LONDON (Reuters) - Bank of England Governor Mark Carney on Tuesday defended the central bank's decision to flag the risks of leaving the European Union, coming under renewed attack from a lawmaker who has been highly critical of his role in the Brexit debate. Carney said the Bank might have to make a big reassessment of its stance on interest rates if Britain votes to leave the EU in the referendum on June 23 - widely known as Brexit - and that was something it felt obliged to explain ahead of time 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 in the event of a vote for Brexit, as a British departure from the EU is known.
