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.
Lufthansa has halted flights to and from Egypt's Sharm el-Sheikh following a Russian plane crash. Russia has insisted on waiting for official results, while German authorities review a video of the suspected bomb attack.
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.
For the first time, Russia's FSB intelligence agency has said a bomb brought down the Metrojet airliner in Egypt. President Vladimir Putin has vowed to crush the "Islamic State" with vengeance.
Rescuers believe they have found some of the wreckage from Cairo-bound EgyptAir flight MS804 in the Mediterranean Sea. The plane went down overnight on a Paris-to-Cairo flight, with 66 people aboard.
