MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Saturday, an Airbus A321 passenger jet crashed en route from Sharm El-Sheikh to St. Petersburg killing all 224 people on board. The event is the worst civil aviation disaster in Russian history.
"During the additional investigation of the forward fuselage, the Russian Emergencies Ministry rescuers discovered a body of a child, presumably, and remains of the victims," Alexander Agafonov said.
The bodies, brought to Russia on Monday, will be identified in St. Petersburg. Over 200 DNA samples have been gathered among victims’ relatives to assist in the identification process.
