BREAKING: Russian Plane With 224 Passengers Crashes In Egypt’s Sinai

Please pray for the families of the 224 people who perished on this plane. The investigation will include a look at terrorism even though the Egyptian authorities have indicated the plane wasn’t shot down. 
A Russian passenger plane carrying 224 people has crashed over central Sinai, Egypt’s Prime Minister’s office has confirmed.
The plane was travelling from the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh to the Russian city of St Petersburg, according to Egypt’s state-run news agency, MENA.
Egypt’s North Sinai is home to a two-year-old Islamist insurgency. Militants linked to Islamic State have killed hundreds of soldiers and have also attacked Western targets in recent months.
Egyptian security sources say there is no indication the plane was shot down or blown up.

“Although hostile action has been dismissed I am absolutely certain that will be one of the focuses of investigators on the ground,” he said.
