• Russians say terror act caused Metrojet crash
  • Egypt has not yet responded to Russia’s statement

Russia’s federal security service says a “terror act” caused the Metrojet flight to crash in Egypt on 31 October.

Russia’s security services said a bomb was on board the flight from Sharm el-Sheikh to St Petersburg, which killed 224 people. The Russians also said traces of explosives were found in the debris.

On the day of the crash Isis-affiliated militants in Sinai claimed responsibility.

Russia’s aviation authority already banned Egypt’s national carrier from flying to Russia on 15 November with all flights from Russia to Egypt are already suspended.

According to local media the move to ban Egypt Air was to ensure it met safety requirements.

Egypt has not yet responded to Russia’s latest statement.
