MOSCOW —The Kremlin now says a bomb brought down a Russian jetliner over Egypt last month.
This is the first time Russian leaders have acknowledged the crash was the result of a terrorist act.
All 224 people on board the Metrojet flight died when the plane crashed into the Sinai Peninsula on Oct. 31.
Two employees at the Sharm el-Sheikh airport have been arrested.
Russia’s head of security says traces of explosives were found in the plane’s debris and a two-pound homemade bomb was on board the plane.
An affiliate of the Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the crash.
Russia is offering a $50 million reward for information on who was behind the bombing.
