By Lin Noueihed and Tim Hepher CAIRO/PARIS (Reuters) - The EgyptAir jet that disappeared last week did not show technical problems before taking off from Paris, sources within the Egyptian investigation committee said late on Tuesday. The sources said the plane did not make contact with Egyptian air traffic control, but Egyptian air traffic controllers were able to see it on radar on a border area between Egyptian and Greek airspace known as KUMBI, 260 nautical miles from Cairo. Speaking on condition of anonymity, the sources said the plane disappeared without swerving off radar screens after less than a minute of it entering Egyptian airspace.

By Amanda Becker WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrat Hillary Clinton, seeking to dampen Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's growing appeal with working-class voters, on Tuesday accused him of having cheered on the 2008 housing market crash. Clinton's campaign released an ad with audio that the presumptive Republican nominee recorded in 2006 for his now-defunct Trump University venture. Trump, a billionaire real estate developer, in remarks on a "bubble burst," said: "I sort of hope that happens because then people like me would go in and buy" property and "make a lot of money." Clinton's campaign and her surrogates have seized on the recording to argue that she would take better care of the U.S. economy.

Published in 1959, "Naked Lunch" shocked the era's sensibilities with its graphic and non-linear narrative of the journey of William Lee, who delights in drugs and gay sex. The project was abandoned but Willner last year reopened it in collaboration with King Khan, a Canadian psychedelic punk artist championed by Reed.
