A Russian charter plane carrying 224 people crashed in a mountainous part of Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula Saturday, killing everyone on board, officials said.
The Airbus A-321 had just left the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, bound for the Russian city of St Petersburg.
Wreckage was found in the Hasana area and bodies removed, along with the plane’s “black box”. An official described a “tragic scene” with bodies of victims still strapped to seats.
Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin has declared Sunday a day of mourning and has ordered an official investigation into the crash of flight KGL9268, and for rescue teams to be sent to the crash site.
