The exact causes of the crash of the A321 airliner are named. According to the results of the investigation, it was found that the cause of the crash was a homemade bomb. So, this accident was recognized as a terrorist attack.
After the tragic crash of the A321 airliner in Egypt, which claimed the lives of 224 passengers, 25 of whom turned out to be children, the Russian authorities launched an investigation into the causes of the crash. Initially, it was reported that the accident occurred due to a malfunction of the old aircraft. Also, information was leaked to the media that before the crash, the pilot asked for permission to land at Cairo airport.
But a few hours ago head of the FSB Alexander Bortnikov made an official statement in which he stated with full confidence that this plane crash was the result of a deliberate terrorist act. According to him, explosive particles were found on the wreckage of the aircraft. And according to experts, the power of a homemade bomb was about one kilogram of TNT.
“According to our experts, an improvised explosive device with a capacity of up to one kg of TNT went off on board the aircraft in flight, as a result of which the aircraft “collapsed” in the air, which explains the dispersion of parts of the aircraft fuselage at a great distance” - said Bortnikov. In connection with these results of the investigation, the President of Russia Vladimir Putin said that airstrikes on the bases of ISIS should be intensified. According to him, all the terrorists who blew up the plane with so many innocent people will be found anywhere in the world and destroyed.
