While Russia and Egypt deny the US and UK claims of a bomb as the cause of the downed Russian jet, new information from British spies helps confirm this theory. Intercepted messages of a planned terror attack point to a bomb planted on the plane. The wreckage also has holes in it from shrapnel which points to the likelihood of a bomb. This should be a wake up call for our DHS!
British spies intercepted messages between ISIS members discussing a major terrorist attack in Egypt, the Telegraph reported.
Those communications led British officials to believe a bomb likely brought down the Russian Metrojet airliner last Saturday and caused them to shut down travel from the Sharm el-Sheik airport to Britain, according to the newspaper.
Russian and Egyptian authorities are rebutting US and British claims that a Metrojet airliner was likely downed by a bomb — while new images have emerged that show holes in the fuselage that appear to have been made by projectiles from inside the doomed jet, according to a report.
The Metrojet Airbus A321 crashed Saturday in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula about 23 minutes after taking off from Sharm el-Sheik en route to St. Petersburg, killing all 224 people aboard.
Russian newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda reported that the telltale holes in the wreckage, with the edges curving outward, “look like marks made by shrapnel,” the Mirror reported.
“We may suppose that these are the holes made by the destructive parts of the bomb,” said the Russian newspaper, which cited a three-second video that bloggers found from a Russian TV report.
