Russian passenger jet ‘may well have been brought down by a bomb’ – follow up to a previous post on The WIDER View

Following a previous post (see below), the UK has announced that the Russian passenger jet may well have crashed due to a terrorist bomb attack and has there fore cancelled flights to and from Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.

Reuters reported a similar view by expressed by an alleged Egyptian source close to the investigation but still cited mechanical failure as the most probable cause.

Other reports suggest an engine or fuel explosion and satellites have allegedly picked up a heat source around the same location and time of the jet’s disappearance.

Either way, there is now little doubt an explosion occurred in flight. Investigation of the black boxes are on going, as is analysis on the ground at the various debris locations.
