Russian investigators en route to the Kogalymavia (Metrojet) flight 7K9268 crash site in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula will examine all possible causes of the accident, a source close to the probe said Wednesday.

CAIRO (Sputnik) – The death of all 224 people on board the airline’s Airbus A321 is the largest civil aviation disaster in Russian history. The passenger jet broke apart in midair after taking off from the Egyptian resort of Sharm El-Sheikh en route to St. Petersburg.

"The investigators will test versions from a terrorist act to a technical glitch," the source told RIA Novosti.

Debris belonging to the A321 Russian airliner are seen at the site of the crash in Wadi el-Zolmat, a mountainous area in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula on November 1, 2015. International investigators began probing why a Russian airliner carrying 224 people crashed in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, killing everyone on board, as rescue workers widened their search for missing victims. - Sputnik International
Data From A321 Flight Data Recorder ‘Extracted, Validated’
The Investigative Committee team departed to the crash site in central Sinai Peninsula from the Egyptian capital of Cairo by bus late Wednesday.

The Egyptian Aviation Ministry said earlier it had begun extracting and validating data from the aircraft’s flight data recorder, and said extensive work would be required to extract data from the damaged cockpit voice recorder.
