U.S. as well as U.K. intelligence are now saying that the Russian jet that left from St. Petersburg and headed to the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, was most likely brought down by a bomb planted by ISIS onboard.
The report comes after a study of ISIS messages from that area over social media and other platforms, as well as unusual sounds that came from recordings of inside the cockpit.
It appears that the bomb was hidden inside luggage or elsewhere.
Britain and Ireland have suspended flights to the area.
(CNN) Days after authorities dismissed claims that ISIS brought down a Russian passenger jet, a U.S. intelligence analysis now suggests that the terror group or its affiliates planted a bomb on the plane.
And the office of British Prime Minister David Cameron says the plane “may well have been brought down by an explosive device.”
Metrojet Flight 9268 crashed Saturday in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula after breaking apart in midair, killing all 224 people on board. It was en route to St. Petersburg from the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.
