CAIRO: A Russian security source told the Ifax Russian news agency that a stowed bomb was the cause of the crash of a Russian air bus in late October, killing 224 passengers and crew, reported Reuters.

Russian President Putin has ordered special services to focus on finding those responsible for the terrorist act, Reuters also reported.

An international investigation team announced earlier this month that the debris at the crash site was consistent with an “in-flight break-up,” but did not name the cause. Both Moscow and Cairo urged media to refrain from jumping to conclusions about the cause until the investigation was completed, however Russia has announced it would suspend all flights with EgyptAir for the time being.
