Russian Jetliner may have been brought down by bomb, British and United States Officials say

British and United States officials say they have information suggesting the Russian jetliner that crashed in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula may have been brought down by a bomb.

British Foreign Secretary, Philip Hammond said there was a significant possibility that the crash was caused by a bomb, and Britain was suspending flights to and from the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh indefinitely.

The US and British security sources however, stressed they had reached no final conclusions about the crash, as forensic evidence from the blast site, including the airplane’s black box, was still being analysed.
