However, one part does reveal new information about the co-pilot. Gameel El-Batouty was alone in the cockpit when the plane started to make its deadly descent.

And now this: The FBI found several incidents where Gameel El-Batouty exposed himself at this New York Hotel. The crew had stayed here prior to the fateful flight.
Jim Hall/NTSB: These statements you refer to are a very small part of the huge investigative document. Whether they are relevant or not will be determined during the analytical phase of this investigation. Egyptian Officials continue to focus on possible mechanical problems with the Boeing 767. In Cairo, El-Batouty's family has angrily denounced any allegations of improper behavior.

[SUPER=03-Roanoke/Charlotte Eagles vs. Wrath; :00]

To Victory Stadium we go where a number of kids came out to cheer on the Wrath and hopefully take home a free T-shirt yesterday evening. They would have to wait until the second half to get their win as veteran Patrick McSorley gets the only goal of the game in the 82nd minute of action.
[SUPER=34-Charlotte/0/Roanoke/1;]

The Wrath beats Charlotte 1-to-0, but it still may not be enough to get them in the postseason. They play at Wilmington tonight. (------------)
