Russian and Egyptian investigators working to establish cause of crash of a Russian airliner

01, Nov 2015

Russian and Egyptian investigators are working to establish the cause of the crash of a Russian airliner in the Sinai Peninsula that killed all 224 people on board, including 17 children. The plane crashed 23 minutes into its flight from Sharm el-sheikh to St. Petersburg on Saturday. Most of those on board were Russian tourists. Several radical Islamic groups have called for attacks on Russian targets since it began airstrikes on ISIS forces in Syria in late September.
