Islamic State terrorist who blew up Russian airliner ‘identified’ and ‘last seen in Turkey’

Investigators have identified the airport worker who planted a bomb on a Russian passenger jet and was last seen in Turkey, Russian media have claimed.

Life News, a Russian tabloid site with close links to the security services, reported on Tuesday that a baggage handler at Sharm el-Sheikh airport smuggled an explosive device on board Metrojet flight 9268 to St Petersburg in October last year.

    Bet the guy at Sharm who thought he was just hiring another skilled drugs handler/ baggage thief to “boost his earnings” is somewhat concerned about his future these days.

    This is what aircraft wreckage looks like. Think Pentagon. Think Shanksville. Think no planes.
