Egypt: Authorities round up airport workers after Russia confirms bomb brought down passenger jet.
Egyptian officials reportedly detained 17 airport employees Tuesday, hours after the head of Russia's security service said that the crash of a passenger plane over the Sinai Peninsula last month that killed all 224 people on board was an act of terrorism. Reuters, citing two security officials and an employee of the airport in the Red Sea resort town of Sharm El-Sheikh, reported that 17 people were being held, but only two were strongly suspected of assisting whoever planted the bomb on the Metrojet airliner Oct. 31. One security official told Reuters that closed circuit television showed a baggage handler carrying a suitcase from an airport building to another man, who was loading luggage onto the plane. Reuters also reported that security forces were looking for two men accused of leaving a luggage-scanning machine briefly unattended while passengers were boarding the plane. Earlier Tuesday, Alexander Bortnikov, the head of Russia's FSB security service, told Russian President Vladimir Putin that a homemade explosive device blew up on the plane shortly after takeoff. Bortnikov added that traces of explosives were found in debris at the crash site. Bortnikov told reporters that the device was equivalent to more than two pounds of TNT, "which caused the plane to break up in the air, which explains why the fuselage was scattered over such a large territory. I can certainly say that this was a terrorist act." More available at this link: http://www.foxnews.com/world/2015/11/17/russian-security-chief-says-bomb-brought-down-plane-over-sinai/?intcmp=hplnws
