Russia confirms Sinai plane crash was the work of terrorists

On the evening of November 16, 2015, Russia confirmed that Metrojet Flight 9268 that crashed over the Sinai desert on October 31, 2015 was indeed an act of terrorism. Two hundred and twenty-four people were murdered in the bombing. Andrew Roth reports in the Washington Post.

“Seventeen people are being held; two of them are suspected of helping whoever planted the bomb on the plane at Sharm el-Sheikh airport,” one of the officials said.

Egypt has still not yet confirmed that a bomb was responsible, saying it wants to wait until all investigations are complete.
