RUSSIAN AIRCRAFT CRASHES IN EGYPT, OVER 200 FEARED DEAD

A Russian plane carrying about 224 passengers and crew members were on a plane that crashed in a remote mountainous area in Egypt. The aircraft had just departed from a Red Sea resort, Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt, bound for St Petersburg. The plane had been in the air for about 20 minutes before crashing. Early reports say that all aboard the plane were Russian  or Ukrainian citizens, and it is not believed that there were any survivors. Rescuers described a tragic scene with bodies of victims strapped in their belts.  The estimated altitude of the plane was 30,000 feet before it crashed. Ground reports indicate that the Airbus A-321 had split in half. A criminal case has been opened against the Kogalymavia airline.
