Russia’s Federal Security Service says a "terrorist attack" caused the Russian passenger plane to crash in Egypt last month. It's the first time that the Kremlin has confirmed that a bomb did bring the plane down.
Militants reportedly linked to "Islamic State" have targeted a mosque in the north of Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, killing at least 305 people and wounding scores. Egyptian authorities say the death toll is likely to rise.
The investigation into the Russian airplane that crashed into the Black Sea on Sunday will focus on pilot error or technical problems. A Russian news agency reported a black box has been found.
Egyptian investigators have found traces of explosives on the remains of victims of last May's EgyptAir plane crash. Terrorist motives had been played down and no group has claimed responsibility.
The recent fatal knife attack on German nationals at a popular Egyptian resort is yet another setback for the country's troubled tourism sector. Industry officials have called for immediate action.
