Egypt search and rescue teams have located a crashed passenger jet carrying more than 220 Russian tourists in a remote area of the Sinai desert.
Egyptian air traffic control lost contact with the airliner shortly after it took off from the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh to head to Russia.
The Irish-owned aircraft was leased by a Russian airline. It crashed in the Hassana area, south of Arish.
Debka is saying the airliner was downed by a missile. h/t El Martyachi
