The Egyptian pilots' union has named Bill Clinton in a lawsuit over the FBI 
investigation into the EgyptAir Boeing 767 crash. The union is said to be 
furious at leaked reports which suggest co-pilot Gamil al-Battuti crashed the 
plane into the Atlantic, killing 217 people, in an act of suicide. The action 
is being taken through the Egyptian courts and accuses investigators of 
ignoring other possible reasons as to why the New York to Cairo jet crashed. 
It calls on Mr Clinton to relaunch the inquiry and look at possibilities 
including one that a land-to-air missile brought down the aircraft. Union 
officials have delivered a copy of the lawsuit to the US embassy in Cairo 
reports Channel Africa News.
