    Russia's Worst Air Accident: A321 Crashes in Sinai (273)

    Debris from the Russia-operated Airbus A321 that crashed in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula will be transported to Cairo for more detailed study, local media reported Tuesday.

    CAIRO (Sputnik) — On Monday, investigators from Egypt, Russia, Germany, France and Ireland conducted debris analysis at the crash site, the Egyptian Almasry Alyoum newspaper reported, citing a source close to the investigation.

    The source claimed that the investigatory team had not found explosive material either among the plane wreckage or on passengers' bodies.

    An Airbus А321, operated by the Russian airline Kogalymavia en route from the Egyptian resort of Sharm El-Sheikh to St. Petersburg, crashed in the Sinai Peninsula, killing all 224 people on board. The October 31 tragedy is the largest civil aviation disaster in Russian history.

    UK and US officials said last week there was a possibility that the crashed Russian airliner could have been brought down by a bomb.
