Mechanic Suspected in Egypt Plane Crash

An EgyptAir mechanic with alleged ties to ISIS is being accused of planting a bomb on a Russian passenger jet that crashed in October. Egypt’s official statement remains that there is no evidence the flight was taken down by terrorism. The plane crashed in the Sinai Peninsula, killing 224 people on board. Sources told reporters that the mechanic, whose cousin has joined the terror group, two airport police officers, and a baggage handler have all been detained in connection to the purported bombing. One of the sources said, “After learning that one of its members had a relative that worked at the airport, Islamic State delivered a bomb in a handbag to that person.”
