Sinai crash victims flown to Russia

A plane carrying the remains of 164 people killed when a Russian airliner crashed in Egypt landed in Saint Petersburg.

The emergency Russian plane, the first to bring back the bodies of those who died when the A-321 plummeted from the sky above the Sinai Peninsula, arrived in the Pulkovo airport of Russia’s second-largest city early on Monday.

Investigators from several countries have joined an Egypt-led probe to determine what brought down Russian airline Kogalymavia’s flight 9268 on Saturday, killing all 224 people on board, en route from Sharm el-Sheikh to Saint Petersburg.

They have recovered the “black box” flight recorders of the Airbus, and the head of an Irish mission that will join the Egypt-led probe into the disaster said the results from the recorders should be ready in a few days.
