CAIRO — A Russian airliner carrying 217 passengers and seven crew members has crashed in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula and has possibly crashed, media reports said on Saturday
The flight took off from the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheik and was heading for Russia.
The Airbus A-321, operated by Russian airline Kogalymavia with registration number KGL-9268, was flying from the Sinai coastal resort of Sharm el-Sheikh to St Petersburg in Russia when it went down in a desolate mountainous area of central Sinai soon after daybreak, the aviation ministry said.
