Probe says Russian plane ‘broke up in air’

A Russian airliner that crashed in Egypt on 31st Oct.broke up "in the air", as the bodies of many of the 224 people killed on board were flown home. President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi urged patience to determine the cause of crash, after the Islamic State jihadist group (IS) claimed it brought down the A-321 in Egypt's restive Sinai Peninsula. Sorochenko, who is heading an international panel of experts, said it was "too early to draw conclusions" about what caused the flight from the Red Sea holiday resort of Sharm el-Sheikh to Saint Petersburg to crash. Investigators have recovered the "black box" flight recorders of the Airbus which crashed killing all those on board, and the Egyptian government said its contents were being analysed.
