The plane which was operated by a Russian airline, was flying from the Sinai Red Sea over to St petersburg in Russia when it crashed into a desolate mountain area in central Sinai. A tracking service suggested that the plane had a smoove take off, but rapidly came to a fall after approaching its altitude.

A Egyptian security guard gave a statement on what he saw at the scene saying,

“I now see a tragic scene. A lot of dead on the ground and many who died whilst strapped to their seats.

An officer, who wishes to remain anonymous says,

“The plane split into two, a small part on the tail end that burned and a larger part that crashed into a rock. We have extracted at least 100 bodies and the rest are still inside.”

The Egyptian prime minister will be heading to the site with several other ministers.
Sources say that they hear a lot of telephones ringing on the plane belonging to the victims. Family members who are probably waiting for their loved ones and unfortunately will never hear from them again.
