CAIRO – A terrorist group affiliated to Islamic State in Egypt claimed responsibility for the downing of a Russian passenger plane that crashed in Egypt’s Sinai peninsula on Saturday, the group said in a statement circulated by supporters on Twitter.

 

Egyptian security sources earlier on Saturday said early investigations suggested the plane, carrying 224 passengers and crew, crashed due to a technical fault.

 

The claim of responsibility was also carried by the Aamaq website which acts as a semi official news agency for Islamic State.
