Russian plane crash: Russia suspends Egypt flights

Russia is suspending all flights to Egypt following indications that last week’s plane crash which killed all 224 people on board was caused by a bomb.

President Vladimir Putin has also asked for up to 50,000 Russian holiday-makers currently in Egypt to be brought home.

The UK has suspended flights to Sharm el-Sheikh and is flying Britons home.

Intercepted militant “chatter” suggests a bomb was put in the hold before take-off. French aviation officials told the BBC there was no technical failure.

      multiculturalism, isn’t it special.

        Some multiculturalism is fine. But would we import on a large scale members of the KKK? It’s the cultural relativism that is the problem. Not all cultures are equal or beneficial, most, but not all.

        You know, the members and clergy of white super liberal Protestant churches can all pack up and leave as far as I’m concerned.
