ISIS group in Egypt claims it downed Russian charter plane

CAIRO, Egypt – Militants in Egypt who pledged allegiance to the jihadist Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS),  claimed responsibility for the Russian plane crash on Saturday, October 31.

The Russian airliner carrying 224 people crashed in a mountainous part of Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, killing all on board, Egyptian security and medical officials said.

The plane with 214 Russian and 3 Ukranian passengers, and 7 crew, had taken off from the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh in the south Sinai bound for Saint Petersburg. It lost contact with air traffic control 23 minutes later. – Rappler.com
