Data Shows Steep, Unrecoverable Descent of Russian Metrojet Plane; U.S. Intelligence Suggests ISIS Bomb on Rusian Plane

Investigators are uncovering new clues about the final seconds of Metrojet Flight 9268. CNN’s Miguel Marquez reports.

The latest U.S. intelligence suggests that the crash of a Russian passenger jet flying over the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt was most likely caused by a bomb on the plane planted by ISIS or an ISIS affiliate, according to a US official familiar with the matter.

Early investigation is attempting to determine whether or not a bomb was planted on Metrojet Flight 9268 at Sharm El Sheikh Airport, or whether or not a missile was launched at the plane from the Sinai desert.

The U.K. has now suspended flights from the Sinai Peninsula over fears that ISIS likely smuggled a bomb onto a downed passenger jet.

Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond tells Sky News there’s a “significant possibility” Egypt plane crash was caused by a bomb on board.

David Cameron says intelligence gave concern that Egypt plane crash was “more likely than not” caused by a bomb.

House Intel. Ranking Member Adam Schiff (D) says that there is a substantial terrorism problem in Sinai, but urges people not to jump to conclusions just yet.
