Egypt's Attorney-General to start investigating 'criminal activity' behind crash of Russian plane. (AlAhram).
An official Russian report suggesting that “criminal activity” was behind the crash of a Metrojet that killed all 224 on board in November 2015 was referred to the Attorney-General by Egypt’s independent investigations committee, a statement from the committee said on Thursday.
A Russian airliner crashed in Egypt's central Sinai on 31 October, killing all 217 passengers and seven crew members.
Egypt has opened an investigation into the causes of the crash, and allowed Russia to take part in the probe.
The Kremlin said on 17 November that a bomb had ripped apart the Russian passenger jet and promised to hunt down those responsible.
No official and final report by Egypt has been issued yet.
“As part of the ongoing collaboration between the countries participating in the investigation – notably Russia and Egypt – the committee received on 14 March 2016 an official report from Russia’s official investigation,” the statement from the investigations committee said.
“After studying the report – which suggested that suspected criminal activity is possible – the committee has referred the matter to the attorney-general of Egypt,” the head of the committee Ayman Elmokadem stated.
