The British government’s intelligence leading it to believe that an explosive device may have brought down the Russian passenger in Egypt did not come from the plane’s wreckage, security sources told local media Wednesday.

LONDON (Sputnik) – On Saturday, a Kogalymavia-operated Airbus A321 crashed en route from the resort city of Sharm El-Sheikh to the Russian city of St. Petersburg. All 224 people on board, including 25 children, were killed.

Russian Investigators to Test All Possible A321 Crash Causes in Egypt
British aviation experts who have arrived in Sharm El-sheikh to assess airport and flight safety were not the source of a theory that a bomb may have been on board flight 7K9268, a defense source told a Sky News correspondent.

The British prime minister's official spokesperson said in a statement earlier in the day that all flights from Sharm El-Sheikh International Airport en route to the United Kingdom were delayed, citing speculation that the Russian airliner "may well have been" brought down by a bomb.

The spokesperson said it could not say "categorically" why the Airbus A321 crashed Saturday, but reached the decision to suspend flights "as more information has come to light."
